A Day Trip to Dorchester
Located on Route 106 between Memramcook and Sackville, the village of Dorchester overlooks the Memramcook Valley at the confluence of the Petitcodiac and Memramcook Rivers. Dorchester is a safe, quiet community, rich in heritage and natural beauty. From the Village heights you can look out upon Shepody Bay, one of the innermost points in the Bay of Fundy, home to some of the highest tides in the world. Dorchester offers a landscape rich in history from the Acadian dyking system that dominates the marshland landscape to the history of ship building within the Village. The Villages offers two museums. The Keillor House Museum built in 1813 by Yorkshire stone mason, John Keillor. This house contains nine fireplaces, period furniture, much of the original construction and a working bake oven. Be sure to climb the spiral staircase rounding a ship’s mast to the attic bedroom. The Coach House contains antique carriages and tools as well as the unique Penitentiary Collection; a collection of artifacts used over 125 years ago in the Dorchester Penitentiary. St. James Church Museum built in 1884 houses a variety of tools and equipment used by the church’s builders. The Beachkirk Collection provides a history of textiles and other domestic crafts and trades. Demonstrations and teaching of carding, spinning and weaving. Open early June to mid-September. Call 506-379-6633 for information. Also not to be missed, Dorchester’s own Bell Inn was built in 1811 and is the oldest stone structure in New Brunswick. It is now a restaurant and is listed in the Where to Eat in Canada publication. Be sure to see the World’s Largest Sandpiper statue in the Village Square, carved from a single log. If you are here between mid July and mid August, drive down to Johnson’s Mills to the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Shorebird Station to learn about the Semipalmated Sandpipers and see them feeding on the mudflats of Shepody Bay. Also along the shoreline of Dorchester Cape and continuing out to the Rockport Peninsula are some of the most interesting geological rock formations housing fossils. Bring your camera for the many scenic views. 506-379-3030 www.dorchester.ca
A Day Trip to Port Elgin
The picturesque Village of Port Elgin is located on the beautiful Gaspereau River 22 km north of Sackville just off of Hwys 15 & 16. The oldest incorporated village in New Brunswick offers the visitor many attractions. Monro Heritage Museum contains various displays and a community museum documenting the history of the village and the natural history of the Gaspereau River. The historic site of Fort Gaspereau is located just outside of the village limits and offers a memorial plaque, 18th century gravestones, and a working navigational beacon. Nature lovers will enjoy the trails and parks situated in the Port Elgin area. The Red Wing Blackbird Trail has recorded more birds per acre than any other site in New Brunswick. The trail winds around Goodwin Pond in Baie Verte passing through alders, spruce forests, and the upper reaches of the Baie Verte salt marsh. The Gaspereau Heritage Trail connects the Monro Museum in the Village of Port Elgin with the mouth of the Gaspereau River. An Historical Walking Tour pamphlet is available at the Village Office and Cole’s Grocery Store. The walking tour takes you on an enjoyable stroll around the village and points out historical buildings and sites. A community wharf is available to boaters and the Gaspereau River is ideal for canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and other small craft. The village offers two parks lining the river with picnic tables and shade trees. The Village also boasts the annual Lupin Quilt and Craft Fair and the Port Elgin Exhibition Days. Neighbouring attractions include the Cape Jourimain Nature Centre, Murray Beach Provincial Park and Fort Beauséjour National Historic Site.
