Grand Pre is a community in Nova Scotia known as the "great meadow" of dyked lands and lies along the shores a few kilometers east of Wolfville. It was founded by Acadians and has served as the home of immigrant artisans and farmers for three centuries. The town is the setting for Longfellow’s poem, “Evangeline”, and was the most prominent settlement of the Acadians prior to their deportation.
The town’s main attraction today is the Grand Pre National Historic Site, which boasts an Acadian well, a bronze statue of Evangeline, a blacksmith’s shop, and a stone church erected to commemorate the Acadians; the church has an exhibit inside depicting the Deportation. Second to this designated historic site, tourists come to Grand Pre also for the wineries in the region, some of the best in Nova Scotia.
