1946 Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame Monument

In the ruins of Louisbourg there is a monument, erected in 1946, to the memory of the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame who taught in Louisbourg.

Immediately behind the monument are the stabilized ruins representing the convent.

The Sisters lived in Louisbourg from 1737 enduring exile in 1745 and returning to Louisbourg in 1749 only to be displace again by war in 1758. During their stay in Louisbourg they educated young girls and served as an example of devotion and sacrifice to the community.
