Biographical history

Harriet Taber Richardson was an American from Cambridge, Massachusetts, who spent her summers in the Annapolis Royal area from about 1923. An admirer of Samuel Champlain, her interest in him broadened to include Port Royal. In 1928 she teamed up with local historian Loftus Morton Fortier to rebuild Habitation. She established the Associates of Port Royal, with chapters in Massachusetts, New York and Virginia, with the goal of raising money for the reconstruction.
