St. Anne's Church
St. Anne's Church

This Chapel was built largely through the efforts of three men; Father Abbe Sigogne, Judge Wiswall of Digby and Chief Andrew Meuse. These men petitioned the government at the time for a parcel of land for the Mi'kmaq to settle on and t have a section of land set aside for a church. Father Sigogne wanted to build a church as early as 1816, but it wasn't until the summer of 1831 that William Farnham was engaged. On August 19, 1831 Father Sigogne blessed the cornerstone. It took 24 1/2 days to complete the outside, the inside was not finished until 1836. During the churches early years it was used for a day school until a school was built during the 1840's. This Church stands largely unaltered from it's original structure. Mass is still being performed to this date on a regular basis. The inside of the church is quite beautiful in its own right.
