The Rural Community of Upper Miramichi is a local service district (LSD)composed of 16 neighboring communities that offer a great variety to our visitors.
Steeped in historical facts, legends, and sites, the community is sure to please the inquisitive seeker.
The grand old historic houses offer a look into the beautiful architecture of days gone by. You can follow the list we have provided here, and plan your site seeing accordingly.
We also host several natural and manmade points of interest that visitors come from far and wide to see. Cascading waterfalls (Fall Brook Falls), great fishing and hunting packages from many local camps, covered bridges (Nelson Hollow Bridge), suspended walking bridge (Priceville Footbridge), and beautiful rivers to swim, tube, and canoe in. Along with an extensive trail system for snowmobiles and four wheelers, it’s a great place to get back in touch with nature.
A historical tour wouldn’t be complete without visiting a museum or two, and we aim to please.
The Central New Brunswick Woodmen’s Museum is located directly on Route 8 and offers a glimpse into the past of the lumbering industry, lumberjacks, as well as some interesting local history and sits on 15 acres of picturesque land.
The Atlantic Salmon Museum boast of over 3,000 items that commemorate the cultural and economic significance of the Atlantic salmon to all parts of New Brunswick and the world beyond. Artifacts include an extensive array of original paintings, sculptures, salmon flies, rods, reels, and a large library of books and journals.
The Doak Historic Site is a provincial heritage site that contains a house, built sometime in the early 1820s, with its original contents, a milk house and a local school house dating back to 1822.
Along with their historical significance, all three of the Museums host community events throughout the tourist season and offer their own flavor of entertainment and services to their visitors.
Spread throughout the communities are numerous resorts, cabins, camps, campground, Bed & Breakfast, and other lodgings available. Here is a quick but not all inclusive list of places to stay.
