"The Fortress of Louisbourg (in French, Forteresse de Louisbourg) is a National Historic Site of Canada
and the location of a partial reconstruction of an 18th century French fortress at Louisbourg, Nova Scotia, Canada
The original fortress, constructed mainly between 1720 and 1740,
was one of the most extensive (and expensive) European fortifications constructed in North America
The fortress and town were partially reconstructed in the 1960s, using some of the original stonework
and providing jobs for unemployed coal miners in the effort.
The site is now operated by Parks Canada as a Living History Museum."
