Fort Lawrence
1750 – 1756

Interpretative panel


The site of Fort Lawrence is in what is now Nova Scotia
but this interpretative panel is in what is now New Brunswick.
Before 1785, this area — now known as Westmorland County,
New Brunswick — was part of Sunbury County in Nova Scotia.
Historic events that occurred here in the 1750s, 1760s, and 1770s
took place in what was then Nova Scotia.  Plaques and monuments
commemorating events that happened here before 1785 are included
in this collection of Nova Scotia historic markers.  These include the
capture of Fort Beausejour in 1755, and the Eddy Rebellion of 1776.



Interpretative panel located at
Fort Cumberland
a.k.a. Fort Beausejour
Westmorland County, New Brunswick
(formerly Sunbury County, Nova Scotia)

This interpretative panel is located about 20m north from
the Fort Beausejour Museum in Aulac, New Brunswick.

This is the view in front of you as you stand before this interpretative panel.
The site of Fort Lawrence is in what is now Nova Scotia but this interpretative panel
is in what is now New Brunswick – within sight of the site of Fort Lawrence.

In this view, the site of Fort Lawrence (Nova Scotia) appears in the distance,
while the near territory at the bottom of the picture is in New Brunswick.
The Missaguash River is the boundary between the two provinces.

Looking southeastward toward Fort Lawrence,
