The memorial church and Evangeline's statue are features of the Grand-Pre National Historic Site near Wolfville, Nova Scotia.

The statue of Evangeline celebrates the birthplace of the heroine in Longfellow's poem "Evangeline" published in 1847 which told the story of the deportation to the English-speaking world.
