Nearly 100 kilometers north of Saint John, New Brunswick, the Village of Gagetown lies on a branch of the St. John River. Founded in the late 1750s, the Village grew into a busy community after the arrival of the United Empire Loyalists in 1783. The Village today boasts many intriguing heritage properties, including two which are designated historic sites: the Sir Leonard Tilley House, where New Brunswick's "Father of Confederation" was born, and the Queens County Courthouse, home to the Leora Simpson collection of taxidermy bird mounts.
