We are celebrating Albert County’s 175th Anniversary in 2020 and we want you to join us! The Albert County Historical Society (ACHS), with support of the Federal and Provincial Governments, is pleased to announce the 175th Anniversary of Albert County which will be taking place throughout the year with a series of landmark events.
Join us at the kick-off as we host a New Year’s Levee on Saturday, January 4th with Albert MLA, Minister Mike Holland. The event is taking place at Broadleaf Guest Ranch (5526 Route 114, Hopewell Hill, NB) from 1pm to 4pm. Admission is free and there will be food & drink, live music and sleigh rides - bring your snowshoes!

“The Albert County 175 celebration in 2020 is an exciting opportunity for our Historical Society to promote an awareness and pride of the rich heritage and history of Albert County,” says ACHS President, Dawne McLean. “Every community in Albert County has inherited valuable knowledge and priceless stories that need to be shared and preserved for future generations. Let's join together in the celebration of Albert County's 175th anniversary to strengthen our sense of community and appreciation of our past!”
Over the course of the year, we will host events, lectures, live music and celebrations in every parish in the county. Highlights will include the 150th Birthday of New Brunswick-born Prime Minister RB Bennett on July 1st, a special festival with live music on August 8th at the Albert County Museum, and other events featuring local artisans, food & drink, and home-grown musical talent!
A unique mobile exhibit is being created to tell the amazing stories of the Land, Sea and People of Albert County who helped Canada become a nation, created CBC radio, helped win WWI, formed one of the nation’s beloved National Parks and live near the world’s highest tides. Spanning 175 years, from 1845 to 2020, the interactive display will be travelling to the county’s schools, businesses, festivals and events. We are thankful to NB Tourism, Heritage and Culture for their support of this project.
