For the next 40 years, the British at Fort Anne maintained a precarious position in the Acadian-dominated province and were frequently attacked by French and Indian raiding parties. The status of the fort declined with the founding of Halifax (1749) and the expulsion of the Acadians (1755). In disrepair, Fort Anne was transferred to the National Parks Service in 1917 and became one of Canada's first national historic parks.
