The Historic Garrison District originally consisted of the two-block area bounded by Queen, York, Campbell and Regent Streets where British troops were garrisoned from 1784 until 1869. The first buildings on this site were made of wood and later replaced by stone structures. One original wood building still remains in the Garrison, home to the administrative offices of Fredericton Tourism!
Please note: Barracks Square, within the Historic Garrison District, will be closed from July 2 to early fall, 2017 due to construction.
