PROVINCIAL HERITAGE PLACE Middle Island in Miramichi River was a quarantine station in the 19th century, specifically for Irish immigrants fleeing the Irish Potato Famine. Many perished while on the Island. In 1873 it was declared a permanent quarantine station by the Federal Government until 1948. Immerse yourself in the history while walking along sandy beaches and scenic trails; visit the Celtic Cross, Interpretive Centre, amphitheatre, the Captain's Galley Restaurant, picnic areas and interpretive panels.
