The Interpretive Centre is built in the style of an 1800s logging bunkhouse in a lovely setting overlooking the Big Salmon River. There was once a thriving lumber industry that supported the building of over 500 ships in nearby St. Martins. There was a community on the banks of the river with a sawmill, inn, school, homes and churches. This region was once described as one of the richest in Canada with the flourishing shipbuilding and lumber industry during the golden age of sail. Learn about this fascinating history and local stories as you tour the Bay of Fundy. From the Interpretive Centre visit the adjacent heritage sawmill and old-fashioned cookhouse. Take a walk across the 60-metre long suspension bridge, or walk along the riverside trails. Take the time to explore the stunning drive along the Fundy Trail and hike or walk the coastal trails to get a true appreciation of this place. The Interpretive Centre also features a gift boutique with NB made products and other souvenirs, a snack shop, theater with an informative video and knowledgeable staff. Be sure to ask if Mitch the moose is around!
