This site commemorates the location where a group of Acadians, fleeing the Expulsion, arrived in 1755. It is also the site of the first Acadian cemetery of Saint Mary's Bay, used as a burial ground until 1786. The Little Chapel, with its statue of the Immaculate Conception, dates back to 1892. It is the second chapel built on this site and as a reminder of the sacredness of these grounds.
