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of volunteers known as the “Friends of the Charlotte County Historical Society” was formed to preserve and organize historical documents relating to Charlotte County.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.
