The Habitation at Port-Royal (1605-1613) was the first French European settlement in North America north of Florida and is presently known as Port-Royal National Historic Site, a National Historic Site located on the northern side of the Annapolis Basin, Nova Scotia, Canada. After the Habitation was destroyed (1613), Port Royal was rebuilt on the southern side of the Basin in the present day location of Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. Port Royal was renamed Annapolis Royal after the British conquest of Acadia in 1710. In the 1930s the site of the Habitation was located. Archeologists conducted excavations there. The discovery of a duplicate set of plans in France for the original Habitation, together with public and political interest, led to the reconstruction in 1939-1941 of the Habitation on the original site. This reconstruction was the first National Historic Site in Canada to have a replica structure built.
