Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site

Located at Box 160. The Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Park is the crown jewel of the Canadian Park Service and the largest historical reconstruction in Canada. Fortress Louisbourg was built to protect France's interests in the new world and to serve as the centre of its massive seasonal fishing industry.Its location near the eastern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia enabled it to serve not only as the capital of the new colony of Ile Royale but also to act as the first line of defence for France in its 18th century struggle against Great Britain for colonial supremacy in North America.

Cossit House

Located at 75 Charlotte Street. The Rev. Mr. Ranna Cossit was the first Anglican minister to live and work in Sydney. In the late 1700s, he became involved in a struggle for control of political power in Cape Breton, at the time a colony separate from mainland Nova Scotia. In 1800, his archbishop put an end to a budding political career by transferring him to Yarmouth (which is about as far away as you can get from Sydney and still be in Nova Scotia). He built his house in 1787, and it is believed to be the oldest in Sydney. Cossit lived here with his wife, Thankful, and their family. Six of the CossitÂ’s 13 children were born in this house. The refurnishing of the house is based on an 1815 inventory of CossitÂ’s estate in Yarmouth and illustrates the household effects of a family of the late 1700s.
