A Celebration of the LaHave River Community History


Located on a picturesque point at the mouth of the LaHave River, the ocean-side views are breath taking. This National Historic Site was the first capital of New France in 1632, the beginning steps of Acadian history in Canada. The quaint building on site was once a lighthouse keeper’s home and is part of Nova Scotia’s proud lighthouse heritage.

Today, the museum celebrates the LaHave community from the first inhabitants to the present day, with treasures, activities and stories that bring our past to life.
