Protestantism came to the Miramichi between 1765 and 1800 with the arrival of Scottish Immigrants. The first Presbyterian Church on the river was established at Wilson’s Point after 1792. The first Minister was the Rev. John Urquhart, who held services on alternate Sundays at Wilson’s Point and a second church at Moorfield. Rev. Urquhart drowned in 1814 while crossing the Miramichi River.

A Must-See cultural attraction located in Bartibog in a pastoral setting overlooking the Miramichi River. A tour of the restored property, in the company of costumed guides, will take you back to the 1820s when the family of Scottish settler, Alexander MacDonald, helped to develop the area. Visit the grand manor house made of Scottish stone, savour the smells of traditional foods, view embroidery and domestic crafts, and observe gardening and the daily care of farm animals.

Wilson's Point is a site with great significance to the history of Miramichi. Many of the earliest English speaking settlers lived and were buried in this area and it holds the history of our Scottish ancestors.
