Kings Landing Historical Settlement is off Hwy. 2 exit 253. This 121-hectare (299-acre) site is a meticulous restoration of a typical 19th-century Saint John River Valley village, including farms, houses, a forge, a restaurant, a printing office, a school, a store and a theater. Many of these historic and architecturally significant Loyalist-era buildings were dismantled and relocated when a dam project along the river's flood plain threatened to eradicate them.
Special events include historical re-enactments, a fall auction and a Christmas candlelight dinner. Visitors can participate in culinary, wool-spinning, quilting and rug-braiding demonstrations given by staff members in period dress, and there are also activities especially for kids. Free wagon rides are offered as well.
Time: Allow 3 hours minimum.
