The Charlotte County Archives, located in St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada began in 1975 when a group of volunteers known as the “Friends of the Charlotte County Historical Society” was formed to preserve and organize historical documents relating to Charlotte County. Since 1982 the permanent home of the Archives has been at 123 Frederick Street in the old Charlotte County Gaol, a Provincial Heritage Site.  The Charlotte County Archives is a not-for-profit organization run by volunteers and supported by its membership and by donations.

From the Gallery

One of the most interesting collections at the Archives is the Photograph Collection. Who doesn't love looking at old photos? The Archives has over 20,000 images in its collection! We have a small group of dedicated volunteers working their way through the collection to scan and add them to our List of Photographs by Photograph Number. If you're interested in our photos...why not drop in and have a look? Visit our Gallery to purchase scanned images of any of the photographs from our web site, and we also sell copies of most of the photos in our entire collection at the Archives.

Can you help us? 
We need information for this picture
