The Hagerman house. Most of the homes in this village were moved
from along the St. John River in the 1960's prior to the Mactaquac Dam
being built. The dam made the river fill up into a large lake and thankfully
the government at the time had the foresight to preserve some of these
beautiful homes. The village is located along the same river where
most of the homes came from (a few homes were from Fredericton).
It is a beautiful trip back in time and draws hundreds of visitors
every year from all over the world.
The building through the window is one of the old one-room school
houses that used to be very common in rural New Brunswick.
Some of the work horses in the village. That is the river (headpond) still covered
with ice and snow in the background.
The Joslin farm parlour.
Mrs. Joslin, entering her front door.
A visitor learns how to spin wool.
Tools for carding wool and winding on a bobbin.

An old gate ~ note the horse shoes for hinges.
Some very wooly sheep. One of them is even named 'Pam'!!
These are oxen.
This is the saw mill. There is a small dam in the center with ice on it
but we could hear the water spilling over it today from the spring melt.
The Kings Head Inn.
The village church.
Maple syrup and other products available for sale at the main store.
