This year is regarded as the founding of the City of Fredericton. About 2,000 Loyalists settled in the area, including several army regiments. Surrounded by deep snow, bitter cold, canvas tents and a scarcity of supplies, many perished.

Welcome to Fredericton! On behalf of my Council colleagues and the citizens of Fredericton, I take pride in welcoming you to New Brunswick’s Capital City. Whether you are visiting friends or family, attending a convention, or touring our scenic countryside, I am sure you will appreciate our many historical attractions, fine craft and cultural exhibits, and special Maritime hospitality. I encourage you to drop by the Visitor Information Centre at City Hall for a guided tour of Council Chambers, where you will find “The History of Fredericton” articulated in a series of colourful, uniquely woven tapestries. Our tourism staff will be most pleased to provide you with additional information to help you get the most from your visit. Please accept my best wishes for an enjoyable stay in Fredericton, and a safe return home.

Mike O’Brien Mayor

Our Historic Past Our City of Stately Elms owes its life to the mighty Saint John River. The earliest travellers on the great river were the Maliseet and Mi’kmaq who hunted, fished, and grew crops along their “Woolastook” river. Off and on for over 100 years, the French and English fought for ownership of Nova Scotia, which included the area known today as the City of Fredericton. In 1732 the French Acadians fled British forces and travelled to the area where Government House stands today. They called their community St. Anne’s Point. By 1758 the British re-gained ownership of Nova Scotia and expelled the Acadians from St. Anne’s. Although the English swept through the area and chased out most of the French, they could not successfully settle St. Anne’s Point until 1768, as they encountered resistance from the Natives.

14

In 1783, United Empire Loyalists settled in St. Anne’s Point after the American Revolution.

Surviving Loyalists petitioned Governor Parr in Halifax to make the area north of the Bay of Fundy a separate province. In the following year, New Brunswick became a separate colony from Nova Scotia and St. Anne’s Point became the provincial capital. The founding of King’s College in 1785 coincided with the renaming of the settlement to “Frederick’s Town”, in honour of the second son of King George III of the United Kingdom. From this name came the present “Fredericton”. The British Government was quick to approve the capital town and Fredericton became home to several military regiments. The Infantry School Corps (later the Royal Canadian Regiment) was born here in December, 1883. The Historic Garrison District downtown is a tribute to the army’s importance to early Fredericton. In 1845, although the population was not technically large enough, Queen Victoria named Fredericton a Cathedral City and a crew went to work on the Cathedral, the spire of which still dominates the Fredericton skyline. This allowed Fredericton to achieve city status and the City was officially incorporated by the provincial legislature on March 30, 1848. Meanwhile, Fredericton’s first inhabitants were established in a permanent Maliseet settlement now known as the St. Mary’s Reserve on the north side of the Saint John River in 1847. Early Fredericton businesses included mills, a canoe factory, tanneries, carriage and wagon manufacturers, breweries and broom factories. In the 20th century, the city’s industries gave way to universities, reinforcing Fredericton’s education and cultural centric feel. In 1945, Gibson (presently Devon) was amalgamated into the city. In 1973 Fredericton amalgamated a number of surrounding communities, doubling its area and population. In 2018, Fredericton will celebrate its 170th anniversary of incorporation. The people and the events that changed Fredericton from a settlement in the wilderness into the educational and administrative centre of New Brunswick have also shaped a unique cultural landscape. Along our tree-lined streets dwell gifted artists and artisans as well as brilliant scientists and engineers. They keep Fredericton the vibrant community it is.

Barracks Square (497 Queen St.) National Historic Site

City Hall, Clockworks & Bicentennial Tapestries (397 Queen St.) National Historic Site Located at the corner of Queen and York Sts., Fredericton’s City Hall is the oldest City Hall still in use in the Maritime Provinces. Visitors to the building can tour the Council Chamber to view the restored clockworks and a series of tapestries which are on permanent display. (See below for tour times). Produced in 1985 to honour Fredericton’s 200th birthday as Capital, two local artists, Mrs. Gertrude Duffie and Dr. Ivan H. Crowell, created 27 colourful tapestries depicting Fredericton’s history based on Dr. W. Austin Squires’ book “The Last 200 Years”. About the building The old City Hall, which was erected in Phoenix Square in 1876, once included the city office, council chamber, magistrate’s office, jail, farmers’ market and opera house. The tower clock, its eight-foot dials, copper hands and reliable chimes have been keeping downtown businesses and customers on time ever since. With the growing city, City Hall became crowded and plans were made for an addition. Architects carefully designed the addition to make it as compatible as possible with the original City Hall. Construction began in September 1975 and it was completed in 1977. The fountain in front of City Hall was constructed in 1885. Freddy, “the little nude dude” as he is affectionately called, sits on top of the fountain. Look for the original Freddy, older than the Statue of Liberty, in City Hall. In 2013, the fountain was restored to its original 3-tier design and surrounding Phoenix Square was re-designed to make for a more inviting place for our visitors and community to visit and enjoy. A Visitor Information Centre, in the front lobby, is open daily mid–May through to Canadian Thanksgiving. See hours on Page 15 of this guide. Scheduled tours of the Tapestries are available May 22 (Victoria Day) until October 9 (Canadian Thanksgiving): English tours daily at 3:30pm; French tours daily at 3pm. By appointment for remainder of the year. Groups are asked to book ahead. 506-460-2129; TourismFredericton.ca

Set back behind a wrought iron and stone fence, the Historic Garrison District originally consisted of the two-block area bounded by Queen, York, Campbell, and Regent Sts. The first buildings on this site were made of wood and later replaced by stone structures. The Historic Garrison District was declared a National Historic Site in 1964, and in 1965 was designated a protected Provincial Historic Site. Visitors will find a variety of attractions and activities in the Historic Garrison District including the Changing of the Guard, tours, concerts, and live theatre.

2 The Justice Building (427 Queen St.) As you walk down Queen St., from City Hall, the Justice Building is on your left at the corner of York St. Although there are no tours of the Justice Building itself, the annex to the building contains the ‘School Days’ Museum.

‘School Days’ Museum (427 Queen St.) Located in the former Teachers College. This museum contains a collection of artifacts, archival material, books and furniture used in the public schools, teacher training, and Department of Education in New Brunswick, dating as far back as the mid-19th century. Featuring free re-enactments, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 1:30pm throughout the summer. Open mid-June to late–August, Monday to Friday, 9am – 4pm, Saturday 11am – 4pm. September to June, by appointment. Free admission. 506-459-3738; museum.nbta.ca

BARRACKS SQUARE About the building In 1827, a 34 x 37 foot Military Hospital with four six-bed wards was constructed in stone on the site now partly occupied by the Justice Building. In 1875, the hospital and accessory building were removed to permit construction of the Provincial Normal School. That building was destroyed by fire in 1929, but was rebuilt on the same site. The original annex and front entrance pillars survived the fire and can still be seen today. The annex later housed the Model School which was an integral part of teacher training. The building served as part of Fredericton High School from 1965 to 1970. It was remodeled to house law courts and reopened as the Justice Building in 1975.

3 The New Brunswick College of Craft and Design (NBCCD) and the George Fry Gallery (457 Queen St.) The College offers a range of programs from traditional craft studios to contemporary digital design. The College is proud of its Aboriginal Visual Arts program that educates students in the history and traditional crafts of the Wolastoqey, Mi’kmaq and Passamaquoddy First Nations Cultures in Atlantic Canada. A learner-centred creative community with small class sizes and internationally recognized faculty, The College graduates students who are equipped to contribute to the broader cultural economy. Beyond the academic year, the College studios are also home to culture and craft workshops delivered as part of the edVentures Fredericton summer program (edVentures.ca). An exciting campus renewal initiative has generated new evening classes, post-graduate program international partnerships – and an expansion into the historic Soldiers’ Barracks.

34

Throughout the year the College’s George Fry Gallery showcases a diverse range of artwork from students, faculty, alumni and invited guests. Open to the public year–round, Monday to Friday, 9am – 4:30pm and by appointment. 506-453-2305; nbccd.ca

4 Soldiers’ Barracks (463 Queen St.) A little further down, the old Soldiers’ Barracks sits almost on the corner of Carleton St., with its back to Queen St. The Soldiers’ Barracks is an 1827, three and a half storey stone structure built by the British Army to accommodate more than 200 British soldiers. Life was crowded – 19 soldiers to a room. They slept on iron beds, while wooden pegs and shelves held their belongings. A table and wooden benches were the only other furniture. The 22nd Cheshire Regiment was stationed here from 1866 to 1869 and all ranks said they looked back on Fredericton as an ideal station. A bronze plaque honours the 104th Regiment. Remarkably, as reinforcements for the War of 1812, six of its companies made a 1,128 km, 52-day march to Quebec and then to Kingston, Ontario, between February and April of 1813. Don’t set your watch by the sundial outside the east wall of the Soldiers’ Barracks. Although it is a faithful reconstruction of the original sundial which told the time to the citizens of Fredericton in the 19th and early 20th centuries and accurately displays local apparent solar time (LAST), this differs by up to 16 minutes from local mean solar time (LMST). Please note that there will be construction in this area from July 2 to early fall, 2017.

5 The Guard House (15 Carleton St.) To find the 1828 Guard House, turn left on Carleton St. The restored Orderly Room in the Guard House, with its nominal rolls and leave passes, looks much as it did in 1829 when it was first occupied by the 1st Battalion of the Rifle Brigade. A disastrous fire destroyed the original Guard House, cells and 9 other buildings.


BARRACKS SQUARE The Guard Room was home to the 12-man Main Guard. A private soldier in an infantry regiment of 1828 to 1869 could expect to be detailed for either Night Guard or Day Guard at least twice a month. When not pacing his beat, he was permitted to rest by reclining in his full kit on a Guard bed of hard planks, covered with a thin straw pallaise (mattress). The Guard Room looks as it did in 1866, when the 15th Regiment used the muskets, uniforms and equipment on display. The cell block originally contained 7 cells – windowless stone and brick cubicles with an air-hole of about 10 inches diameter in the outer wall. In 1847, the cell block was modified to contain 5 enlarged cells, barred windows and an escape-proof ventilation system. The cell block reveals conditions as they were in 1848. The Guard House will be closed to tours for the 2017 season.

Near the pedway you will also find two new public art pieces:

Watermark Gerald Beaulieu, PEI This creative high water marker displays significant historic flood levels and serves as a real-time flood level indicator during the annual flood season. When the lowest post is submerged (6.5m), the river has officially reached flood level and flooding begins on some streets. 

6 Militia Arms Store (11 Carleton St.) Next to the Guard House, on Carleton St., is what used to be the Militia Arms Store. It is presently the Administration Office for Fredericton Tourism. This is the only remaining wooden structure of the original 4 to be found in the Historic Garrison District. It was built in 1832 to house military weapons and ammunition for the Royal New Brunswick Regiment. In 1882, a rear addition renovated the building for use as a Military Hospital. It has also been used as a liquor warehouse, temperance hall, and caretaker’s residence for the adjacent armouries. Tours are unavailable. Visitor Information Centre year round, Monday to Friday 8:30am – 4:30pm. 506-460-2041; 1-888-888-4768. Please note that the building will be inaccessible to the general public due to construction beginning July 2 to late fall, 2017. As you cross the street to the library, you will notice the riverfront pedway. This pedway was officially named the “The 104th Regiment of Foot Bridge” in 2013. The walkway, also accessible by bicycle or wheelchair, links downtown Fredericton and the Historic Garrison District with the riverfront and trails, commonly known as The Green.

Rendez-vous Catherine Leva, France This sculpture made of New Brunswick basalt and granite was gifted by the New Brunswick Medical Society in celebration of its 150th anniversary. It was created during the 2016 New Brunswick International Sculpture Symposium in Saint John and is located on the waterfront next to the south side trail close to the Westmorland Street bridge.

7 Fredericton Public Library (12 Carleton St.) This busy library, located in the heart of downtown, caters to visitors with free WiFi, a reading area overlooking the Saint John River, a welcoming children’s department, rotating art exhibits and free programs and events for teens, adults and children. Open 7 Days per week, all year long Monday, Tuesday, Friday Saturday & Sunday 10am – 5pm; Wednesday & Thursday 10am – 9pm. 506-460-2800; gnb.ca/publiclibraries

The museum is also home to the world famous 42-pound legend, The Coleman Frog. About the building The Officers’ Quarters building, with its stone arches, iron handrails and staircase (typical of the Colonial Period) faces the old Parade Square. It originally served as the quarters for the British Officers stationed in Fredericton. The original structure (circa 1786) was made of wood but it was gradually rebuilt with stone. The current structure was completed in 1853. In 1883, Fredericton was honoured to be chosen for the establishment of the first permanent and oldest Canadian military unit, the Royal Canadian Regiment.

Officers’ Square (575 Queen St.) Named one of the Top 10 Public Spaces in Canada (2012) and a Provincial Heritage Place Directly in front of the Fredericton Region Museum sits Officers’ Square, one of the city’s most unique and historic areas. It was a centre of military activity when Fredericton was garrisoned by the British Army from 1785 to 1869, and by the Canadian Army from 1883 to 1914. During July and August, it is the site for outdoor summer concerts, the Changing of the Guard ceremony, daily outdoor theatre, outdoor films, and a variety of festivals and events throughout the year. Garrison Festival and Event Centre The event centre is home to our ceremonial guard and contains public washrooms. In the winter, it serves as a public change area for the Officers’ Square skating rink. For information on programming in Officers’ Square contact 506-460-2129 or visit TourismFredericton.ca Lord Beaverbrook Statue A bronze statue of Lord Beaverbrook, New Brunswick’s great benefactor, is at the centre of Officers’ Square. Unveiled on August 28, 1957, it was erected through the generous contributions of the children of the province.


The Beaverbrook Legacy Lord Beaverbrook (1879 – 1964) born William Maxwell Aitken, was raised in Newcastle, (now Miramichi) New Brunswick. In 1910, he went to England and allied himself with Andrew Bonar Law the only Canadian to ever become Prime Minister of Great Britain. In 1916, Maxwell Aitken received the title of Lord Beaverbrook, complete with a coat of arms designed by Rudyard Kipling. Beaverbrook was Minister of Aircraft Production during World War II, held various political appointments, and he built a publishing empire based on the Daily Express newspaper. He is best remembered in New Brunswick for his many gifts to the province and to the University of New Brunswick (UNB). In 1954, the provincial Legislature declared him “a native son of New Brunswick”. His legacy to Fredericton includes the Beaverbrook Art Gallery, The Playhouse, the Lady Beaverbrook Rink, the Lady Beaverbrook Residence, the Lady Beaverbrook Gymnasium, and many other buildings on the UNB campus stand as a testament to him and his family.

The Lighthouse (617 Regent St., Regent Street Wharf) The Lighthouse, situated on The Green in downtown Fredericton, has been a landmark since 1989. The Lighthouse has been reinvented as Fredericton’s only local craft beer garden and BBQ pit restaurant. At one time, there were over 30 lighthouses along the Saint John River. Now due to the buoy system of channel marking, very few are needed, and those that are still required have been automated. The light at the top of the Lighthouse is fully functional and there is a viewing station at the top where you can take in breathtaking views of the city.

spectacular view. The pathway is divided into four sections. The first stretches from the Delta Hotel to Smythe St., through the area originally settled as St. Anne’s Point. The section from Smythe St. to Lighthouse on The Green, was named Limpert Lane in October 1997, in honour of Fredericton Olympic Silver Medalist, Marianne Limpert. The next section, from the Lighthouse to Morell Park at the lower end of Waterloo Row, is the original “Green”. The final segment, stretching from Morell Park, past the Loyalist Cemetery to the Princess Margaret Bridge, is known as the Salamanca Trail. Regent Street Wharf The Regent Street Wharf offers a variety of services to visitors arriving in the capital by boat. Including a visitor dock with secure access, dumping station, electrical hook-ups to 30 Amps, and water. A Port Warden is on duty daily during June, July & August, and on weekends in May & September.

14 The Fredericton Playhouse (686 Queen St.) Fredericton’s first choice for live performances. The 709-soft-seat theatre is the place to catch live performances by regional, national, and international musicians, dance companies and theatre companies. The Playhouse was given to the people of New Brunswick in 1964 by publishing baron Lord Beaverbrook (see page 36). This award-winning performance venue is a favourite stop for national touring artists and also provides a stage for local professional and amateur productions. 506-458-8344; theplayhouse.ca

15 Legislative Assembly Building (706 Queen St.) Serving as the seat of government in New Brunswick since 1882, the present day building replaced the old Province Hall, which was destroyed by fire in 1880. The main entrance opens into a vestibule and hallway hung with portraits of former Lieutenant Governors. Beyond is a large self-supporting spiral staircase. The Chamber reflects the taste of the late Victorians. Next to the Legislature is a modest stone building, the ground floor of which was built in 1816 as an office for the Provincial Secretary. The upper floors were added in 1869. It is the oldest surviving public building in Fredericton and houses offices relating to the Legislative Assembly.

16 The Beaverbrook Art Gallery (703 Queen St.) “It may be that I am recalled chiefly as the builder and founder of an art gallery. The labour of my age may prove more lasting than the strident achievements of youth or the aggressive toil of middle life … The eyes of youth, falling upon these walls, may draw from them an impulse to create and emulate.” - Lord Beaverbrook As the provincial art gallery of New Brunswick, the Beaverbrook Art Gallery presents a rotating schedule of contemporary and historical exhibitions that give focus to the art and visual culture of New Brunswick and the Atlantic region, as well as of Canada and beyond as reflective of the particular nature and strengths of the permanent collection. The Gallery presents a wide spectrum of ideas, themes, and media within the visual arts, presenting the work of both established and emerging artists, and provides a forum for the art of the province’s First Nations and Acadian communities. The Gallery also hosts exhibitions on loan from other institutions. Fall 2017: look for the opening of a new pavilion, including new gallery spaces and visitor amenities!

19 Christ Church Cathedral (168 Church St.) National Historic Site Just up Church St. from Gallery 78 is Christ Church Cathedral, considered to be the first Cathedral in North America (1845 – 1853) to adhere to the exacting standards of the mid-19th century Gothic Revival in church architecture. Modeled after the medieval parish church of St. Mary’s at Snettisham, England, built according to the express wishes of Bishop John Medley, and designed by Frank Wills and William Butterfield, the Cathedral was declared a National Historic Site in 1983. The cathedral cornerstone was laid in 1845, construction was complete by 1853, and it was consecrated that year by Bishop John Medley, first Bishop of Fredericton under whose auspices it was built. His exquisite cenotaph is at the east end of the cathedral, surrounded by the many fine examples of woodworking and stained glass art that add depth and character to this awesome structure. Although not on public display, the Cathedral also contains the letters patent of Queen Victoria, appointing the Rev. John Medley as Bishop of Fredericton, and constituting the Town of Fredericton to be a city. It also possesses a Royal Bible, which was presented by Albert, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII).

market is the liveliest, most colourful spot in town! The Fredericton Boyce Farmers Market was named one of the ten best Farmers Markets in Canada. The Market is a cornucopia of meats, vegetables, baked goods, maple products and ethnic foods; a treasure-trove of art, crafts, jewellery, and flowers. The Market pre-dates the city’s founding. In 1785, residents petitioned the governor to create a townsite – a prerequisite for holding a market. The Market building was constructed in 1951. A bequest of $40,000 from the estate of Walter W. Boyce, a prominent local businessman, got the project off the ground. The York County Council paid the rest of the construction costs. The Market houses over 217 stalls and outdoor vendors. Saturdays only; 6am – 1pm. 506-451-1815; frederictonfarmersmarket.ca

Bishop Dollard began construction of a new St. Dunstan’s Church. Upon completion it became the cathedral and Episcopal Seat of the diocese – the first Roman Catholic Cathedral built in the new Diocese of New Brunswick. The British government made a donation to the church with the understanding that British soldiers stationed in Fredericton were to have seats in the church free of charge. The building, erected in the mid–1840’s, was replaced in 1965 by the present modern structure. Two chapels honour The Sacred Heart of Jesus, and Mary, the Mother of Perpetual Help; its 14 stations of the cross are hand carved in linden wood. Bishop Dollard’s Episcopal chair occupies a place of honour at St. Dunstan’s, and a moving painting of “The Crucifixion”, a consecration gift to Bishop Dollard from his friends in Quebec, still hangs there too. Visitors are welcome to visit the church on their own. The church is open daily. 506-444-6001; stdunstansparish.ca

The Old Public Burial Ground (500 Brunswick St.)

St. Dunstan’s Church (120 Regent St.) Father Michael Sweeney, from the Diocese of Quebec, was the first Roman Catholic missionary to Fredericton. He purchased property on Regent St. and built a small chapel in 1824. On September 30, 1842, the Diocese of New Brunswick was created and the Rt. Rev. William Dollard, V.G., was named its bishop by Pope Gregory XVI. The small chapel was moved to the rear of the lot and used as a school and in 1845,

From St. Dunstan’s, cross Regent St. at the corner of Brunswick St. In the Old Town Platt, is one of the most historically important cemeteries in New Brunswick. The Old Public Burial Ground is the final resting place for many of the Loyalist families who founded New Brunswick, as well as its first clergy, judges, and government officials. It has graves dating back to 1787. They lie with the families of the English governors, members of the British regiments stationed in Fredericton, and the early settlers from the British Isles from whom many Frederictonians are descended. This cemetery was used for more than 100 years. A detailed map of the cemetery is on display. Open to the public from 8am – 8pm daily.

Wilmot United Church (473 King St.) Provincial Historic Site A group of Scottish soldiers, all Loyalists, formed the Fredericton Methodist Society in 1791. The congregation outgrew one chapel, lost another by fire, and built the church that stands today in 1852. It is one of the oldest buildings in regular use in the city, and the last of the great wooden churches, which dominated the skyline of 19th century Fredericton. From 1852 to 1974, a unique wooden hand, carved by Edward Charters, topped the tallest spire in Fredericton. The hand, designated in 2007 as a Fredericton Heritage Icon, is displayed in the sanctuary. In 1925, the Fredericton Methodist Church entered the United Church of Canada and adopted the name ‘Wilmot’ in honour of its leading layman, Lemuel Allan Wilmot, the first native–born New Brunswicker to be named the Lieutenant Governor of NB. Among the church’s stained glass windows is one by the William Morris Studio installed in 1913, and in recent years re-identified by researchers and deemed to be a valuable find in Canada. The church’s décor was planned in 1948 by famous Canadian artist, the late Alex Colville. Wilmot’s pipe organ is opus 2049 of Casavant Frères, dedicated in 1951, and restored in 20002001. 506-458-1066; wilmotuc.nb.ca

Brunswick Street Baptist Church (161 York St.) This congregation is descended from the 13 members who organized the first Baptist Church in the area on January 1, 1814. By 1840, the congregation had grown large enough to need a new church. That wooden structure built on this site and dedicated in 1840, was destroyed by fire in 1882. That same year, the congregation laid the cornerstone of the fine Neo-Gothic church that stands today. Built of purple-blue freestone quarried in New Brunswick, it boasts a 60-foot tower with a spire that extends a further eight

feet and a beautiful tracery window over the main entrance. The Gothic decoration of the semicircular sanctuary and balcony is bathed in the glow of several stained-glass windows. Self Guided Tours Monday to Friday, 9am – 4:30pm. No guided tours are available. 506-458-8348; bsbc.nb.ca

St. Paul’s United Church (224 York St.) National Historic Site The history of St. Paul’s United Church begins in 1829 when a public meeting was held to discuss the building of a Presbyterian Church in Fredericton. In 1830 the first worship service was held and in 1832, the church was incorporated. When St. Paul’s celebrated its Golden Jubilee in 1882, plans were under way for a new building. Four years later, on January 10, 1886, the new St. Paul’s was dedicated and is the church building used today. Although the union of Methodist, Congregational and Presbyterian churches had been discussed since 1912, it was not until 1925 that the Act of Union came into effect and St. Paul’s became a United Church of Canada. The character-defining elements the church are its architectural style – High Victorian Gothic with soaring corner tower and tall spire, its stonework (random limestone walling and dressed sandstone to form quoins, window and door surrounds, copings, and band courses), copper roof and stained glass windows. The three-keyboard organ was installed in 1947 and dedicated to the memory of the men and women lost in two World Wars. The sanctuary also displays rich woodwork and decorative painting. 506-458-1183; stpaulsunited.ca

St. Anne’s Chapel of Ease (245 Westmorland St.) National Historic Site “A place of worship with free seats”. When Bishop John Medley came from England in 1845, he brought architect Frank Wills with him. He set this young man to work to design a church that would, in the Bishop’s words, “provide a place of worship with free seats for the poor and coloured people of the parish who lived on the outskirts of Fredericton”. Consecrated on March 18, 1847, St. Anne’s Chapel of Ease became Canada’s first free church. Tours are available July 4 to August 31; Monday to Friday from 9am – 12pm. If Chapel is not open come to the office (door off Charlotte Street parking lot). Also throughout July enjoy our Summer Concert series every Wednesday from 12:10 – 12:50pm. 506-451-0630; parishchurch.ca About the building Bishop Medley believed that Gothic architecture and Christianity were inseparable, and that the chapel’s pointed-arch design and stonework were synonymous with morality. The sandstone on the Chapel exterior, the hardstone buttresses, and the trim came from New Brunswick; as did the butternut that was used for most of the interior woodwork. From almost 20 metres (64 feet) in the air, three bells have been calling people to worship for over a century and a half. The Whitechapel Bell Foundry in London, England cast these bells, the largest weighing 532 pounds. In 2010, St. Anne’s Chapel of Ease was added to Fredericton’s local Historic Places Register. The Lych-gate The low stone wall that surrounds the chapel is interrupted by a lych-gate. The word “lych” comes from an old English word meaning “corpse”. These roofed structures, which date back to sixteenth-century England, were designed to protect the coffin from inclement weather during funeral services. This particular gate is believed to be one of only a few such gates remaining in North America.

1 The Station (380 York St.) This 1923 heritage property was once a bustling train station that was a major hub for transportation in the Maritimes. After service was discontinued in 1993, the structure fell into major disrepair. It was decided that the building would be refurbished into a state-ofthe-art event space with an adjoining liquor store. The renovation was completed in 2011 and ‘The Station’ officially opened. Though the building has been heavily renovated, it still carries with it the charm of its earlier years, lined with photographs of the original structure. In addition to many other events, The Station is host to “Saturday Sips”, a free wine tasting event that takes place every Saturday from 11am-3pm. Open year-round. 506-452-6524; anbl.com

Carleton Park is located on the city’s trail network, North Riverfront Trail, making it an ideal destination from the Lighthouse and across the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge. Originally in the old Village of Gibson, the park was developed after the Town of Devon was amalgamated with the City of Fredericton in 1945. Located beside the park is the newly opened Picaroon’s Roundhouse. A craft beer taproom and café featuring local fare. In 1888, the area was used as the site for unloading granite to build the first train bridge across the Saint John River in Fredericton. Following the Gibson Fire in 1893, the area was used for 50 years by a succession of lumber mills. During the last quarter of the 19th Century, the site was also used as a railway yard.

As one of Canada’s best preserved examples of a 19th-century mill town, Marysville, just 10 km from the centre of Fredericton, was designated a National Historic District by the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. A big brick cotton mill dominates Marysville, now a part of Fredericton. Its streets are lined with rows of brick workers’ tenements, elegant managers’ homes, stores, and churches. Here, 19th century industrial and social structures come to life. What began as a modest sawmill village on the Nashwaak River became a booming, prosperous town through the genius and foresight of Alexander ‘Boss’ Gibson. The cotton mill operated profitably well into the 1940’s, essentially employing most of the town’s population. However, the end of the war brought foreign competition and the mill was forced to close in the 1970’s. The Cotton Mill was designated a National Historic Site in 1986 and now houses Government of New Brunswick offices. Looking for more information? Visit the permanent display called “The Boss’s World” at the Fredericton Region Museum. You can also visit a monument located at the North end of the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge.

5 The Ville (241 Canada St.) The Ville promotes health, recreation, and sustainability by providing access to an essential hub that consists of professional workshops, camps and clubs, green technology initiatives, food security, dynamic programming, and many more opportunities within the Fredericton/Marysville community. The centre provides a platform to connect individuals from all walks of life, by creating an
