Louisbourg in Nova Scotia, Canada - A Step Back In Time Into The Late 18th Century
A Visit of Louisbourg Is A Step Back In Time Into The Late 18th Century
The fortress of Louisbourg was the last stronghold of the French in Nova Scotia before the British took over and ruled in Atlantic Canada.
In 1758 the French suffered their final defeat. The British kept the fort and used it until 1768. After this it was left to itself and fell into ruins.
Only when the local village of Louisbourg had to look for new ways to provide jobs for their inhabitants did they think of the derelict remains of the old fortress. They reconstructed part of the fort back to its original glory, and today visitors can step back in time to relive life in Louisbourg how it was in the 18th century.
Actors and local people in period costume bring the past alive again in this living history museum which is one of Canada's best.
