Charlotte County and Surrounding Areas - Where History Comes to Life

The shores and isles of the phenomenal Bay of Fundy are generously endowed with the legacies of more than three centuries of European settlement.

That rich heritage is commemorated in numerous museums and institutions in and around Charlotte County, New Brunswick: the Ross Memorial Museum, Charlotte County Archives & Gaol, the Blockhouse, Sheriff Andrews House, Ministers Island, Sunbury Shores and Kingsbrae Garden in St Andrews, The Chocolate Museum and the Charlotte County Museum in St Stephen, the Beaver Harbour Archives & Museum in Beaver Harbour, the McAdam Railway Station, located just outside of Charlotte County in McAdam, and the Grand Manan Museum and Roosevelt Campobello International Park in the Fundy Isles. Countless artefacts and specimens of wonderful architecture of homes, shops, churches, ships, lighthouses and public buildings are lovingly preserved, bringing history vividly to life.

The shipbuilding, logging, agriculture and fishing industries were instrumental in the area's growth; the Canadian Pacific railroad also contributed strongly to the prosperity of our ancestors, with Sir William Van Horne in the vanguard. Fascinating exhibits, abundant natural beauty & wildlife, a wealth of genealogy information and a celebration of the slower pace of times gone by will make any visit to Charlotte County a memorable one. There truly is something for everyone - whether one's passion is history, architecture, ancestry, arts & culture, horticulture, anecdotal lore, famous people, birding, hiking, seafood, the glories of nature, or chocolate!
