Acadian Historical Village

Acadian Historical Village Review

A highlight of the Acadian Peninsula, the more than 40 restored buildings here re-create Acadian communities between 1770 and 1949. There are modest homes, a church, a school, and a village shop, as well as an industrial area that includes a lobster hatchery, a cooper, and a tinsmith shop. The bilingual staff tells fascinating stories and the demonstrations are great fun; visitors are invited to take part. For the full experience, you can enjoy dinner and entertainment during the evening and stay overnight in the grand Hôtel Château Albert, an authentic re-creation of a 1907 hotel—a chauffeured 1925 vehicle transports you and your luggage from the parking lot.
