Previously known as Côte-des-Boudreau, Pointe-des-Boudrot or Village-des-Michel, Starr's Point was probably the largest settlementt in the area of Rivière-aux-Canards and a significant embarkation site for the Acadians during the Deportation, which began in 1755.
Five years later, the Planters, a group of settlers from New England, take ownership of these sites. A commemorative monument dedicated to the Planters was erected at Town Plot, to mark the location of the lands ceded after the Deportation of the Acadians.
Visit Starr's Point Cemetery to observe the dykes on the Cornwallis River, which to this day enable farmers to cultivate these lands.
You can also visit Prescott House, named after its former owner Charles Prescott, a rich merchant who contributed to the agricultural development of the area in the 19th century.
Lastly, visit the barracks and military structures built in 1778 for the soldiers stationed here to defend the settlers against American Naval raids.
