The 18th century French fortress at Louisbourg was destroyed by the British in 1760 after the Seven Years War and partly reconstructed beginning in 1961 and using some of the original stone. The project provided jobs for hundreds of unemployed coal miners, and the place is now a Canadian national living-history site.
