About Fort Anne National Historic Site

Step foot onto Canada’s oldest National Historic Site and one of the most hotly contested pieces of land on the entire continent at Fort Anne. For centuries, a succession of Scottish, French, First Nations and English settlers clashed over this prize on the banks of Nova Scotia’s Annapolis River. 

Relive this turbulent history inside Fort Anne’s museum, housed in the fort’s restored original officers’ quarters. See one of the only original copies of the 1621 Nova Scotia Charter – the document that gave Nova Scotia its name. Pore over historical artifacts, many found on site, showing the early presence of Mi’kmaw, Scottish and Acadian people. Gaze upon exhibits documenting the long struggles between the English, French and First Nations for supremacy.
