EVANGELINE
GRAND PRE— "The Great Meadow"—was the birthplace of
the late Sir Robert Borden, former Canadian Prime Minister,
and in the graveyard of the old Covenanter Church lie many
distinguished members of his family. Proceeding down
the hillside and under a Norman arch, you pass into
Evangeline's Memorial Park, into Acadia, visited by tourists
from many parts of the world! Yes, and into Normandy itself!
Voices are hushed as the guide recounts the story of
Evangeline, the beloved Acadian heroine who, expelled
from her country, and separated from her sweetheart, found
him after years of searching only to surrender him to Death.
Near the Park entrance stands a cross constructed from the
foundation stone of the original church and marking the
graveyard. A few paces beyond is "Evangeline's Well".
Nothing remains of the priest's garden except a row of whispering willows, trees which stand as monument to the French
who planted them.
The Memorial Chapel (St. Charles) is a stone replica of the
old frame building, and was built by the voluntary subscriptions of Acadians scattered all over the continent. It contains
many Acadian relics and a very interesting museum.
Hebert's remarkable bronze idealization of Evangeline stands
a few feet from the Chapel and deserves more than passing
mention. Begun by Philippe Hebert, R.C.A., finished by his
son, Henri, the lifeless metal gives an impression of breathing
beauty.
