Louisbourg (Port Code:CALOU) is a port town in Nova Scotia, Canada. The port is located on Cape Breton Island's eastern coast, approx 23 mi (37 km) to the southeast of Sydney NS. The town was founded in 1713 as French military Fortress (named Havre a l'Anglois / English Port). Its fortified seaport was built on the harbour's southwestern part. The harbour had been used by Europeans since the late 16th century as a fishing port. In the 18th century, Louisburg was ranked North America's 3rd largest port - following Boston MA and Philadelphia PA. The port was mainly used for exporting fish, and seafood products (like cod-liver oil). The harbour started to grow as a major commercial seaport with the construction of the Lighthouse in 1842.
