Kings Landing Historical Settlement

Kings Landing Historical Settlement is located 37 km west of Fredericton, NB. It was created in the late 1960s when the Mactaquac Dam threatened to flood many historic buildings in the Saint John River valley. Today over 60 restored and reconstructed buildings and other structures are located at Kings Landing in a community setting.

The collection of buildings includes homes and farmhouses, a sash and door factory, a grist mill, a sawmill, a general store, a parish school, several tradesmen's shops, and a reconstructed sailing boat. Kings Landing is one of Canada's pre-eminent living history sites interpreting society on the Saint John River in the 19th century. Unlike many such sites which focus on a specific year or decade, Kings Landing shows the evolution of this society from its Loyalist roots to the late Victorian era. The site is open from late May to mid-October .
