Campbellton and Miramichi are two small cities located in Northern New Brunswick. I visited both cities in August 2014.

Campbellton

Churches

Christ Church Anglican

 

First Baptist Church

This church was built in 1912.

First United Church

This church was built in 1950.

Knox Presbyterian Church

This church was built in 1926.

Notre Dame des Neiges (Roman Catholic) Church

This church was built in 1950.

Commercial Buildings

Former Bank Building

The coat of arms is that of the Government of New Brunswick.

New Brunswick Telephone Company

This building dates from 1925. Note the details over the windows and main entrance.

Store #1

I really like the arched windows and brick details on the second story. The lower facade still retains a few original features, like the decorated columns.

Store #2

This building has definitely seen better days, but there are still a few interesting details remaining, such as the bay windows and the decoration along the roof line.

Houses

House #1

I just love this place!

House #2

This style of bungalow is not commonly seen implemented in brick.

House #3

This house dates from 1927. I suspect that it was originally built as a commercial building.

House #4

This is another interesting example of a brick structure. I especially love the tower on the front.

Miscellaneous

Bridge across the Restigouche River

It connects to Pointe-à-la-Croix, Quebec.

City Hall

Campbellton was incorporated as a City in 1889; this building dates from 1910.

Municipal Building

This building dates from 1922. The tower on the left-hand side is visible across much of the city.

Miramichi

Miramichi was formed in 1994 by the amalgamation of several smaller communities, including the towns of Chatham and Newcastle, and the village of Douglastown. Note that most of these photographs were taken in the former town of Newcastle. I hope to cover more of the city in future visits.

Churches

Calvary Baptist Church

 

St. Andrews' (Anglican) Church

This Church was built in 1850.

St. James and St. John United Church

Construction of this church commenced in 1829 under Master Builder William Murray. It exemplifies neo-classical design.

Public Buildings

City Hall

 

Newcastle Town Hall and Theatre

Construction of this building was paid for by Max Aitken (Lord Beaverbrook) in 1953.

Northumberland County Court House

This building was built between 1912 and 1913. The architect was Leslie R. Fairn of Wolfville, Nova Scotia. It represents the Richardson Romnesque style.

Houses

House #1

 

House #2

 

House #3

 

House #4

Note the gingerbread detail along the roof line. The ground-floor of this building is now occupied by an Asian restaurant.

House #5

 

House #6

 

House #7

I especially love the round windows.

Miscellaneous

Masonic Hall

Presumably this building used to be a church, but I do not know its history.

Dixie Lee sign

This vintage sign probably dates from the mid-1960s.

Fountain Head Lane sign
