Acadian Removal at Remsheg, August 15, 1755



Land had been granted to a Pierre Gaudier in 1689. Beginning in early 1700, French settlers called "Acadians" began to settle in the Remsheg area. Mostly farmers, their farming methods included dyking the fertile marshlands to plant their crops. Their dykes are some of the few remaining symbols of these hard working people.

Ownership of Acadia changed hand several times between England and France while the Acadians remained on these lands.
