The story of Acadia and Grand-Pré is one of sadness and tragedy, of dreams unfulfilled and lives forever changed by the larger forces that swirl beyond the control of simple farmers and woodsmen. Over 250 years ago, the Acadian farmers at Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia were deported from their homes and farms as British and French kingdoms wrestled for control of North America.  The event is remembered in Longfellow’s epic poem Evangeline, which inspired interest in Acadian heritage and lead to the establishment of the Grand-Pré National Historic Site.
