La Barge

A barge demonstrates the traditional Acadian method of harvesting and drying salt hay. Until the 1950s, it was not uncommon to see over 1000 haystacks between Sluice Point and Hubbard's Point, especially in the area known as "Passe de Pré". The abundance of salt marshes in this region allowed for the large scale harvesting and drying of salt hay upon wooden haystacks, safe from the rising tide.
