French Cross
It reads: French Cross: Tradition has it that on this site Acadians from Belle Island wintered in 1755-56. In the spring of 1755 Pierre Melanson with an Indian boy crossed the bay for aid. On his return he died.
Here you can sit and think about the Acadians and the man that went for aid with the Indian boy.

Sweet spot for a bath. The Kirk Brook was a bit cold but free!

I continued on the French Cross Road. This SUV was never happier. Gravel road for hours.

I guess this was a fortress 400 years ago. Now it would not be so safe.

North Hills Museum

Nova Scotia Circle 4 – From New Minas to ‎⁨Annapolis Royal⁩ 1

The exterior of this tiny farmhouse, built in the 1760s, looks like a typical country residence, but inside it features a collection of great art and furnishings that create an impression of Georgian grandeur.

Robert Patterson purchased North Hills in 1964 and transformed it into a showcase for his outstanding collection of antiques. They included English china, oak, mahogany, and walnut furniture.

Patterson became a popular and valued member of the community through his efforts to form a local restoration group, and he was an early member of the Nova Scotia Heritage Trust.
