The Acadian village of Beaubassin on this site was founded by settlers from Port Royal around 1672. Upon the arrival of Major Charles Lawrence with British troops in April 1750, the French authorities had the village destroyed in order to force the Acadians to move to the French side of the Missaguash River. Thus, Beaubassin was burned by Indians likely under the direction of Father Germain and l'Abbe Le Loutre.
Le village Acadien de Beaubassin fut fondé à cet endroit par des colons de Port-Royal vers 1672. À l'arrivée du Major Charles Lawrence et ses troupes anglaises en avril 1750, les autorités françaises deciderent de détruire le village afin de forcer les Acadiens de déménager au côté français de la riviere Mésagouèche. Ainsi, Beaubassin fut incendié par les Amérindiens sous la direction probable du Pêre Germain et l'abbé le Loutre.
