Photo: Fort Anne National Historic Site Annapolis Royal Bay Fundy Nova Scotia

Fort Anne was built in 1634 and is now a National Historic Site, but back then it protected Annapolis Royal in the Bay of Fundy. This view is from the Fort which overlooks the Annapolis River.

Fort Anne was the centre of Annapolis Royal in 1634, and the Fort is always an important part of any port town that needs protecting. The town of Annapolis Royal was a main focal point between the French and the British troops as they wanted to gain control of Acadia. Annapolis Royal was an important town, more then but even now a little, but when the fort was in operation it served as the head of government for Acadia and Nova Scotia.

Battles between the two sides were fought on this spot numerous times and were at one point said to be the most fought after piece of land in all of North America. This area of land belonged both to the British and French at some point as the fighting continued, but the name of Fort Anne wasn't given to this fort until sometime during the first part of the 19th century.

... As the Fort fell into disrepair, and the buildings started falling down, the public appealed to the Canadian Government to preserve this piece of their heritage and so in 1917, Fort Anne was named Canada's first National Historic Site.
