Fort Anne National Historic Site


The perimeter trail provides easy access to an excellent view of the Annapolis River and basin. On a clear day it is possible to see to Digby which is 30 km down river.

Officers' Quarters Museum

The 1797 Officers' Quarters was extensively renovated in the 1930s. It is now a museum featuring the Fort Anne Heritage Tapestry, a unique 8ft x 18ft (2.4m x 5.5m) work of needlepoint crafted by over 100 volunteers, which tell the last 400 years of the area's history. 

The museum and washrooms are accessible.


Parking at Fort Anne accommodates single vehicles and a limited number of buses. Alternate parking is also available near the Farmer's Market on Lower Street, George Street, and on St. George Street itself.

Perimeter Walking Trail

The fortifications at Fort Anne are based on a raised earthen wall in the shape of a star. A short trail following this wall affords an excellent view of the fortifications, as well as the Annapolis River and Basin. This accessible walking trail is approximately ½ kilometre long.

The perimeter walking trail is constructed of packed crushed slate and designed to accommodate wheelchairs.
