Photo: Memorial Church Grand Pre National Historic Site Bay Of Fundy Nova Scotia

The Memorial Church, built in the 1920's, is one of the recognizable features of the Grand Pre National Historic Site in the town of Grand Pre in the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia. This church was built on the ruins of the old Acadian Church.

This Memorial Church, built on the ruins of the Acadian Church of Saint Charles-des-Mines from 1687 but thought to have been destroyed in 1755 during the deportation, was built during the 1920's and is one of the finest attractions at the site today. This Historic Site is several hectares in size and when it was first built was the agricultural centre of the Acadian community first built on this site in the 1680s.

This church is a reconstruction of the original church that was built on this site, and visitors that come to this area today can get a sense of what it was like to be in the original church, but of course, this one is much newer than the original. With its curved entrance way, bright doors and interesting design, it is an inviting church to come in to and one that people want to see when they come to the Grand Pre National Historic Site. ... continue below the picture...

The first church however, built on this site was destroyed during the deportation in 1755, or at least it was thought it was, and much research has been done around the subject of how the original church was destroyed. It is thought that most likely, around 418 Acadian men and boys were summoned by Lieutenant Colonel John Winslow to the church, where they were then locked inside and told they were under arrest and all their belongings were now property of the crown. Those men and boys and their families were then deported from Nova Scotia and when Winslow's men burned many of the buildings down, it was thought the original church was burned with it.

Memorial Church, built in the 1920's, at the Grand Pre National Historic Site, Grand Pre, Minas Basin, Bay of Fundy, Nova Scotia, Canada. The current church was built on the site of the ruins of the Acadian Church of Saint Charles-des-Mines which was established in 1687 and was thought to be destroyed during the deportation in 1755.
