AAA Editor Notes
Acadian Historical Village (Village Historique Acadien) is 10 km (6 mi.) w. on Hwy. 11 at 5 rue du Pont. This historic site interprets the lives of the Acadians, New Brunswick's “marsh settlers,” from 1770 through the industrial development and modernization of Acadia in 1949. More than 63 authentic Acadian structures, transported to the site and restored, include houses, a chapel, a school, a general store, a printing house, a cobbler's shop, a tinsmith shop, a smithy, a gristmill, a tavern, a covered bridge and the 1910 Château-Albert Hotel. Interpreters in period costumes bring ancestral customs and traditional trades to life.
