Wilson's Point Historic Site

At the point where North and South Branches of the Miramichi converge lies a protected historic site with a panoramic view. Make your way to the end of the Enclosure Rd where you will find the best kept secret in the form of Wilson’s Point Historic Site. This site has great significance to the history of Miramichi and where the earliest English speaking settlers first lived, socialized, did business and were buried and it holds the history of Scottish ancestry along the river.

2021 SEASON

Open Sunday - Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Safety measures for Covid-19 are in place.

So this happened yesterday:

Our beautiful memorial benches arrived. They were built and installed by Mr. John Ryan who is the crafter of all the memorial benches on Middle Island snd we think they compliment the new shelters built by McDougall Construction perfectly. ❤️

Our Scottish Heritage Chair Bill was the first to try them out and we caught him mid laugh when it was suggested that we should have put Paul McAllister’s plaque on a piano in the woods… Paul didn’t like the idea at all and we’re sure he would come back to haunts us 😉

We’ve had many other members who have passed away, we’ll be memorializing them as well in the future, but we believe the two Pauls would be very please with their new benches. ☺️

There’s some finishing touches left to be done by NorthernGreen Landscaping and we will be installing a trail head sign in the near future, but we can safely say this huge project is inches away from being complete. 🤗

We hope to celebrate with a picnic and ribbon cutting in the spring so stay posted. ✂️🎀✂️

Until then why now come try out the benches, checkout the trails and drop into visit our staff inside the little church it’s calling for warm weather today so you bring your beach towel and stay a bit. We’re here til 430 see you soon! 😊

It’s Way Back Wednesday! 🕰

Some people will say the more things change the more they stay the same… William is still at rest after 231yrs but the view around him has changed significantly.  Marlee and Willy as she affectionately calls him had “ Ted Talks” all summer … one sided ones mind you, but it makes you wonder what he’d have to say if he cross the realm for a day doesn’t it? 

Drop by to visit Willy and our staff there’s lots to see and do, we’re open in the little church interpretive center until 430, hope to see you soon 😊

The Grounds

Open Sunday - Saturday 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Safety measures for Covid-19 are in place.

The Scottish Heritage Association has been working to preserve the history of this area.  They have restored the original grave sites & walking trails, installed a wharf, trading post and built an interpretive center in the form of the St James Church Replica. The church was built by Miramichi Timber Frames in the same fashion as the original, that once stood on the grounds from 1791-1838, with only wooden pegs and tongue and groove pine, there isn’t a nail to be found. This beautiful little building was completed in 2005 has perfect acoustics to hold musical events in as well as the annual church service that is held the last Sunday of July.
