“Well worth the visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2010

This historic site is very memorable to me as it is the beginnings of our country. Beautifully recreated site. Like nothing I have ever seen and a must see. The naturally grayed wood and the architecture of the structure sitting on the banks of th Bay of Fundy are very picturesque. It is a spiritual location and you can imagine the life of the people who first came here.

“Very nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2009

I was expecting it to be bigger. Also, I was a bit disappointed because I thought there would be people dressed in period costumes performing period tasks. But there was only one guy dressed up doing all the demonstration. It could be due to the fact that the site is not big. We still had a good time though and it is worth the trip to the Annapolis Valley.
