Step back in time to 1738 with a visit this summer to Fort Louisbourg, a national historic site on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. See a lacemaker demonstrating bobbin lace as it was done during this time in history! A building located on another street has displays dedicated to women and their many important contributions to everyday life at the fort.
