Fodor's Expert Review Les Trois Pignons Cultural Center

Cheticamp Museum/Gallery

The center, which contains the Elizabeth LeFort Gallery, displays samples of the rugs, tapestries, and related artifacts that helped make Chéticamp the World Rug Hooking Capital. Born in 1914, Elizabeth LeFort created more than 300 tapestries, some of which have hung in the Vatican, the White House, and Buckingham Palace. (One standout depicting U.S. presidents is made from 11 km (7 miles) of yarn!) Les Trois Pignons is also an Acadian cultural and genealogical information center.
