|Description:||Boishebert Island and nearby Wilson's Point together form Boishebert National Historic Site of Canada. Under the leadership of Charles Deschamps de Boishebert, many Acadians found refuge during the Deportation at Wilson's Point from 1756 to 1760. Boishebert Island was also an integral and functional part of the early settlement, which gives testimony to the Acadian experience. Prior to Acadian settlement in the region, the Mi'kmaq people camped on the island and were one with the spirit of the land.
Beaubears Island Shipbuilding National Historic Site of Canada, J. Leonard O'Brien Memorial, is the only known, undisturbed archaeological site associated with the national significance of the 19th century wooden shipbuilding industry in New Brunswick.
