About EdmundstonEdmundston is the honorary capital of the Republic of Madawaska, a mythical region that has evolved from 60 years of disputes regarding the exact location of the New Brunswick-Maine boundary. Although the boundary was settled by the Webster-Ashburton Treaty in 1842, local residents adopted the unofficial territory, complete with dialect and flag.
Bilingual Edmundston is the center of the province's pulp and paper industry. The city also is noted for hand-loomed fabrics and wood sculpture. Nearby de la République Provincial Park is a cultural and recreational center. Mont Farlagne, north of town just off Hwy. 2, offers facilities for winter and spring skiing; phone (888) 837-7669 for snow conditions.
