A little history of the area
Tatamagouche is situated at the junction of the French and Waugh Rivers, on the Northumberland shore, or more commonly referred to as the north shore which faces Prince Edward Island. It was once an important part of the territory of the Indigenous People, the Mi’kmaq, inhabiting a territory that encompassed all of the Maritime provinces, part of Quebec and part of the New England states for thousands of years. The word Tatamagouche is a Mi’kmaq word meaning the meeting of two rivers. It was one of the principal routes used by the Mi’kmaq when travelling from PEI to southern Nova Scotia. The most obvious indication of Mi’kmaq occupation is the name “Tatamagouche” itself. It is thought to refer to the meeting or crossing of the French and Waugh River at the right angles. Another theory is that the name comes from a Mi’kmaq word meaning “dam” or “sea wall”. This could refer to the sand bar at the mouth of the two rivers. With colonization, the region first became inhabited with French settlers, known as the Acadians who tended to live in harmony with Native Peoples. Next saw British settlers move into the area becoming the new home for many Scottish family clans. There are many things to see and do: swim in the ocean on beautiful beaches, play a round of golf, ski or snowboard at a local ski hill.
