Summer 2017 - The Confederation Quilt was created by Kings County resident Fannie Parlee in 1864 and is the centrepiece of the exhibit in celebration of Canada's 150th birthday. The exhibit includes a number of other quilts, each with its own unique story, and artifacts 
from the time period of Frances (Fannie) Parlee.

TIS THE SEASON!

(Winter 2011) Join the Kings County Museum this winter for a display of artifacts from Kings County's historic - and snowy! - past. From snow shoes, toboggans and locally made Whelpley skates to vintage Christmas cards and Victorian ornaments!


               STEAMSHIPS
(Summer 2016) New Brunswick's waterways 
were the main method of travelling before roads 
and highways were built, and steamships and 
riverboats travelled along the St. John and 
Kennebecasis rivers starting in 1816. They began 
their decline when railways were appearing in 
towns, but were the most popular form of 
transportation for many years in New Brunswick.
