Surette's Island

Located approximately 20 miles distance from the town of Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, off Route 3, lies the village of Surette's Island whose inhabitants are today direct descendants of those who faced deportation in 1755, the names Surette, Muise (Muis, Meuse), Babin, LeBlanc, Pothier, Doucet, etc. will testify to this.

The Island is joined to the mainland by an iron bridge constructed in 1909. Under this 400 foot structure flow the raging waters of the Tusket River, as the Island is located at the mouth of this body of water.

Named after Frederick Surette, who with some others settled on the island (859 acres) about 1812.
