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.

The Grounds

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.
