Discover a key chapter of Canada’s colonial history on a lonely hilltop high above Nova Scotia’s historic Minas Basin.
Built in 1750, Fort Edward provided an important British stronghold during decades of discord with Acadian settlers and the Mi’kmaq people.
Today, visitors can explore North America’s oldest military blockhouse and walk historic grounds with sweeping river views.
The quiet, subdued site comes alive with imagination.
