At Kings Landing Historical Settlement, the nineteenth century comes to life: all the sights and sounds of New Brunswick's Loyalist past are here for visitors to experience.
George Peabody tells the stories of the families of Kings Landing, of the fine houses, furniture, and household goods brought together at the site. He brings these people to life in his account of rural and village communities. The history of every building in the settlement is told here, with more than 100 photographs illustrating the text.
With this book, you can explore the riches painstakingly assembled by the historians and curators at Kings Landing. The pictures and the text also serve as a memento of a visit to one of New Brunswick's finest heritage attractions.
