Begin your journey with the Place Fort La Tour video and then keep an eye out for Madame La Tour and Charles La Tour. They can’t wait to share their stories with you and will be happy to answer all your questions about life at the fort.

You may also see our blacksmith at work, the confectioner crafting old-fashioned (or is that new-fashioned?) candy, or one of the fort occupants making some bread!

Be sure to take some time to explore the interpretation panels around the site and drink in the stories of a bygone era.

Here’s where you will :

  • Go back in time more than 5700 years at the Where it all began: a shared heritage panel
  • See how the economy grew with the first settlers at the British Early Comers: The Economy Grows panel
  • Dig into the archeaoligy of the site at the Finding Fort La Tour panel
  • Meet the indigenous people at the Menahwesk: A Meeting Place panel OR Meet the Wolastiqiyik (Maliseet), Mi’kmaq and Peskotomuhkati (Passamaquoddy) people, members of the Waponahki (Wabanaki) Confederacy, at the Menahwesk: A Meeting Place panel
  • Defend the fort at the Defending the Way Inland panel
  • Sail into the harbor at the From Beach Point to Port of Saint John panel

And…

  • Explore the natural landscape of the site at Marsh, Rock, and Wilderness All Around panel

You’ll be able to experience more of the Place Fort La Tour story inside the buildings with interpretation panels and displays when we open in June 2021.
