Arichat is a Canadian village in Nova Scotia. It is one of the oldest communities in the province, dating back to the 18th century. It is a district of Richmond County on Isle Madame.HistoryArichat is located on what forms a protected natural harbour. As such, it was an important gem in the maritime province of New France, along with the contemporary capital of Ile Royale, Louisbourg.After the British victory in the Seven Years' War, Arichat would be a gem in the fishery trade, the emperors of which were Charles Robin and John Janvrin, amongst others.During the American Revolution, on 22 September 1776, Canso, Nova Scotia was attacked by American privateer John Paul Jones - the Father of the American Navy. The privateer sailed on the USS Providence and destroyed fifteen vessels, and damaged much property on shore. There he recruited men to fill the vacancies created by manning his prizes, burned a British fishing schooner, sank a second, and captured a third besides a shallop which he used as a tender. Jones then pillaged the community of Petit-de-Grat and Arichat and then returned to Boston.
