Fort Anne - Officers Quarters

Surging into Annapolis Basin the powerful tides carry not only the cold, nutrient-rich waters of the Bay of Fundy, but also the collective memory of North America’s early colonial history. They carry the echo of the big guns at Fort Anne, where once the destiny of the continent hung in the balance.  See, feel and hear the stories!
Canada’s most attacked fort and oldest national historic site has a past that’s filled with intrigue. See, touch and feel it. The fort’s impressive heritage tapestry records some of the big events that took place here. Every stitch is a story – a moment in time – that connects the lives of people during the struggle for empire between Britain and French in the 17th and 18th centuries. Join in on a guided tour. Walk along the shore. Listen to the seagulls. Feel the sun on your face as time blurs in the mists of history.

Even now – more than 400 years after the French first stepped ashore here – the ground still pulses with mystery.
