Wilson's Point Historic Site

At the point where the North and South Branches of the Miramichi River converge lies the nationally recognized and protected heritage site with a panoramic view. Make your way to the end of the Enclosure Road where you will find a hidden little gem in the form of Wilson’s Point Historic Site. The Earliest English speaking settlers (Scottish) who arrived in 1765 lived, socialized, did business and were buried here. Their history is lovingly preserved by The Scottish Heritage Association Miramichi who have restored the original grave sites including that of founding father William Davidson, the historic walking trails, installed a wharf, trading post and built an interpretive center. Wilson's Point Historic Point not only contains the Scottish Ancestry of the river, but also has great archeological significance and deep rooted connections to the Mi'kmaq peoples, as well as, the French, Acadians and Loyalists who have  all helped establish the rich history of this beautiful river region dating well beyond three thousand years.
