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of volunteers known as the “Friends of the Charlotte County Historical Society” was formed to preserve and organize historical documents relating to Charlotte County.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, generously provided by the Province of New Brunswick. The Archives is a non-profit organization and donations help fund daily operations and special projects.

Taproot 046

Confederation is nearly one hundred and fifty years old. This time one hundred and fifty-two years ago, the spirit of forming a national union was already being advanced at the Charlottetown Conference in 1864. Delegates were impressed by what Confederation could offer: greater security, a wider market for their goods, and a way to reach that market through the promised Intercolonial Railway. How would all of this affect Charlotte County located on the south western part of the province?

Our guest speaker, Dr. T. William Acheson, noted history professor at UNB and St. Stephen native, will take us on an interesting discussion of Confederation and how in turn it affected people in Charlotte County. We encourage you to come out and hear what Dr. Acheson shares with us.
