PRINCIPAUTE de MONTBELIARD
1495 - 1793


This memorial is dedicated to the memory of the 431 foreign protestants from the principality of Montbeliard who landed in Nova Scotia between 1749 and 1752. Many of these Montbeliardians were among the founding settlers of Lunenburg on June 8, 1753.

Until 1793, Montbeliard was an independent principality situated northwest of Switzerland. It was the one francophone Lutheran country on earth. Today Montbeliard is a part of France.

With the help of Montbeliardian descendents, the South Shore Genealogical Society and a committee headed by Murray Jodie and Paul Jodrey, this idea for remembrance has become reality.

July 10, 1988, Pierre Jodry of Audincourt, France (Near the city of Montbeliard) unveiled this Monument.
