National Historic Sites and Monuments, NB

Map of National Historic Sites NB

This September, It will be five years I have lived in New Brunswick.  Since that time I have travelled around the province getting to know it thoroughly.   A while back I wrote East Coast Bucket List,  and part of it was finding and documenting National Historic sites.

I am happy to say I have  been to all except for La Coupe Dry Dock in Aulac (couldn’t find it and Belmont house in Lincoln, which has no numbered address to maintain the privacy of the current owners). The Seal Cove Smoked Herring Stands on Grand Manan eluded me. I have been to the the island twice, this spring hiking when I covered the story for Grand Manan’s Red Trail, but I was unable to go to the historic site.  I will have to continue to look for all three.

If Fort Jemseq, has a monument at its location, I have not been able to find it. I have been to the coordinates several times but found no marker or plaque. I don’t have a picture for a Saint Luke’s Anglican Church in Quispamsis, or Chipman Hill, in Saint John but I have been to both.  With summer running out. I thought this was an excellent treasure hunt for history enthusiast enjoy.
