NATIONAL HISTORIC SITES

Beaubears Island Shipbuilding National Historic Site of Canada: The only known undisturbed archeological site associated with national significance of the 19th-century wooden-shipbuilding industry in New Brunswick.

Beaubears Island and nearby Wilsons Point together form Boishébert National Historic Site of Canada. Under the leadership of Charles Deschamps de Boishébert, many Acadians found refuge at Wilsons Point from 1756 to 1760. Beaubears Island was also an integral and functional part of the early settlement that gives testimony to the Acadian experience. Prior to Acadian settlement in the region, the Mi'kmaq people camped on the island.
