Learn the history of Fredericton in a unique way when visiting City Hall. As you tour the Council Chambers, you will see 27 colourful tapestries around the room, each depicting a historical moment for the city. Produced in honour of Fredericton’s 200th birthday as Capital of New Brunswick (1985), two local artists (Mrs. Gertrude Duffie and Dr. Ivan H. Crowell) created the tapestry series based on the book “The Last 200 Years” by Dr. W. Austin Squires.
Scheduled tours of the Tapestries are available May 22 (Victoria Day) until October 9 (Thanksgiving): English tours daily at 3:30pm; French tours daily at 3pm. By appointment for remainder of the year. Groups are asked to book ahead. 506-460-2129
