on the Cabot Trail started as a fishing station used during the summer
months by Charles Robin, a merchant from the island of Jersey and
is considered one of the Acadian capitals of the world. In the years
following the Great Expulsion many Acadians came to this area. The
first permanent settlers, the families of Pierre Bois and Joseph Richard,
came to the area in 1782. The settlement was established in 1785 by
a grant of land to the 14 original settlers. Today the area, which
is at the entrance of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park, is
a popular tourist spot.
The local beach
named La Plage St. Pierre  gives the locals as well as the many
tourists a great place for swimming, camping, and many other recreational
activities. Cheticamp is rich in Acadian hospitality
