Experiencing history in Fredericton

Our last two days in the Maritimes were in Fredericton, capital of New Brunswick, and we continued to dip into history here.  Our first stop was the historic Kings Landing village, a living museum created by bringing homes and churches and buildings from around the area. The village is inhabited by villagers dressed in clothing of the period speaking in character and of their time period. I could have spent all day here going into different houses and talking the the people living there and finding out their story.

This woman was cleaning up from lunch and told us how she does the cooking for her brother and his family.

We got a ride down the hill with this farmer and his team of horses.

This man demonstrated how he makes utensils out of apple wood.

This home is a classic design. I wish we could have spent the whole day there. It's an amazing experience.

Fredericton itself has history. Here's its beautiful city hall.

Yesterday we took the bus north into Quebec at a town called Riviere du Loup, and this morning we take the bus into Quebec City.


  1. King's Landing is one of those parts I'd missed, though I do love Fredericton!

  2. Your trip is taking to such beautiful and interesting places!


I really appreciate your comments.
