The Acadian Historic Village...
they were evicted by the British and scattered across North America, some of them had to go...
...to Saint David, Maine in 1785, where the first French-speaking settlement took shape,
it has been recreated now in the village we see here, all I could do was gape.
The houses were moved from all over the place,
and carefully restored, it was not a race;
what we see today, is as it was then,
right down to the cattle, and the old mother hen.
The La Route Culterelle de la Valle St-Jean, or, The Saint John Valley Scenic Byway starts here.
Middle: One of the houses - it has been restored now.
Bottom: The Village as it is today.
