Historic Fredericton North

  Author:   Anita Jones, Ted Jones,  
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

This book outlines the history and growth of four distinct communities that make up what is known as Fredericton North: Nashwaaksis, Devon, Barker’s Point, and Marysville. Founding families, such as the Robinsons of Nashwaaksis, and important businesses, like the Marysville Cotton Mill, are profiled in depth, alongside information about churches, schools, industries, and transportation in the region. By using carefully selected historical images, Ted and Anita Jones take their readers on a journey through the life of Victorian-era Fredericton North and the unique events that stitched together four distinct communities in New Brunswick’s capital.
