National Historic Sites and Monuments, NB

Map of National Historic Sites NB

This September, It will be seven years I have lived in New Brunswick.  In that time frame, I have traveled 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 and The Seal Cove Smoked Herring Stands, on Grand Manan. I have been to  the island twice, a spring hike, I covered the story for Grand Manan’s Red Trail, unfortunately there was no time to go to the historic site.  With the Covid-19 lock down now easing in New Brunswick, I hope to make it over to the island this year.

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.   I thought this was an excellent treasure hunt for history enthusiast enjoy even if many locations are not open yet,  plaques are still available to be seen.

  1. Wow, that is quite the collection of historical landmarks, Kelly. You’ve done a great job, and as I have followed along, you seem to have a great time in the process. Impressive photos. Fun sculptures on the Prince William Streetscape. Sorry to hear about your leg. –Curt
