Officers' Quarters Museum
The 1797 Officers' Quarters was extensively renovated in the 1930s. It is now a museum featuring the Fort Anne Heritage Tapestry, a unique 8ft x 18ft (2.4m x 5.5m) work of needlepoint crafted by over 100 volunteers, which tell the last 400 years of the area's history.
The fortifications at Fort Anne are based on a raised earthen wall in the shape of a star. A short trail following this wall affords an excellent view of the fortifications, as well as the Annapolis River and Basin. This accessible walking trail is approximately ½ kilometre long.
The perimeter trail provides easy access to an excellent view of the Annapolis River and basin. On a clear day it is possible to see to Digby, 30 km down river.
