Things to do
Calm now reigns over the grassy Parade Square and impressive earthen ramparts of Fort Anne. This place has witnessed thousands of years of history and the past 400 years have been the most tumultuous. In the fort’s museum, housed in the Officers’ Quarters of 1797, learn about the traditional homeland of the Mi’kmaq and how European powers battled for hundreds of years to gain control of this coveted site. Outside, explore the fort’s defensive banks, ditches, and bastions, and as night falls, enjoy a guided candlelit tour of the Garrison Graveyard.
