This area was the site of the Acadian village of Beaubassin, first known Bourgeois settlement. Raided in 1696 and again in 1703 by a force from Boston under Captain Ben Church. Occupied by French troops in 1746 who travelled on snowshoes in February 1747 to make a surprise midnight attack on Grand Pré. In 1750 the entire village of 121 buildings, church, mill and tannery was burned by Indians under orders of Abbe La Loutre, and the inhabitants forced to go to French territory.
