MacDonald Farm Provincial Heritage Site • Mid June to End of August

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.

Interpetive Center built in 2004 is modeled after the original 1791 church.
