The Acadians, know for their dyke building, were drawn to the rich soils of the river’s tidal marshes. After the explusion of the Acadians in 1755 the newly formed Nova Scotia Government expropriated the lands. 200 land grants of 500 acres each were laid out Each one ran from the Annapolis River north to the Bay of Fundy. New England “planters” quickly grabbed these 800 to 1000 foot wide strips of land for agriculture.
