About Us


The Fortress of Louisbourg succeeds in enhancing visitor experiences for thousands of tourists every year and giving hundreds of ordinary modern people the chance to live life in the 18th century. This would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our staff, some of whom have been toiling in relative obscurity for the cause since 1976.

Pierre-Paul d’Espiet de la Plagne sometimes used his troops to tend to his personal needs. My friend, a young soldier called La Fleur later used the knowledge he had gained working in this house. On a dark night in 1740 he scaled the fence, forced a window and robbed his captain of a few coins. It was not a planned theft – swift discovery and conviction saw the soldier branded and whipped through the streets.
