Take a step back in time with our guides, who will show you how the isolated Acadian community survived. Their bright culture is so rich and full of emotions. Stop to see what is growing in our vegetable garden, and open up the Cabano to see what antique tools were used for its upkeep!
Inside the Acadian House Museum (built in 1850), you will discover our collection of artifacts, placed to represent the era's traditional living setting. However, the history of this building is much more than structural. The hole in the wall, the lady in white and the beautiful lilacs hidden behind the house are only a few of the many tales waiting to be told to you on your tour! Make sure to stop by the chicken coop too, the kids will love to watch the French hens peck away at their food.
Continue your visit by participating in one of our local demonstrations of ancestral skills, such as bread baking in our outdoor oven, the making of molasses pulled candy and barley toys, rug hooking, knitting/crocheting, broom making, butter churning, wild honey making, yarn spinning and carding, shoe making and more!
