Village of Perth Andover

Perth-Andover is located on the Saint John River, 40 km south of Grand Falls near the mouth of the Tobique River. Perth on the east side of the river and Andover on the west were amalgamated into one village in 1966 and have a population service area in excess of 6 000 people. Nestled between the rolling hills of the upper river valley, this picturesque village is often referred to as the “Gateway to the Tobique.” Ten kilometers to the west of the Municipality is the U.S. border and to the south about 80 kilometers is the Town Woodstock and the entrance to Interstate 95 leading to the New England states.

Be sure to visit the Perth-Andover website for other upcoming events happening in the community.

Kings Landing

King’s Landing is a recreation of a New Brunswick town from the period of 1780-1910. It was created around buildings that were saved and moved to make way for the headpond for the Mactaquac Dam.

It was primarily settled by Anglo-American Loyalists from the Thirteen Colonies, who were called the United Empire Loyalists in Canada; Scottish, Irish and English immigrants were early settlers as well. It is approximately 40 km west of Fredericton, New Brunswick in the community of Prince William.

Kings Landing Historical Settlement is a representation of rural New Brunswick during the 19th and early 20th century. It is not a replica of an actual village, but a collection of salvaged or recreated buildings from around the Mactaquac headpond and other locations around New Brunswick.

With few exceptions, all the historical buildings on site have been moved and remodelled to specific years in their history. The project was originally started in the late 1960s and continues to the present day, as new buildings are being added every few years.
