ANNIDALE The Story of an Abandoned NB Community

ANNIDALE The Story of an Abandoned NB Community

We have recently received several copies of a newly published book on the community of Annidale from the author, John R Elliott.

In 1891 Annidale (located some 13 miles from Sussex) was described as a thriving community with a train station, a post office, saw and grist mills, a blacksmith and a commodious public hall. Sixty years later the community had ceased to exist. The book traces the settlement from the early 19th century through to its final years in the mid-twentieth century, and includes brief genealogies of the 40+ families who once lived there.

Annidale - From Wilderness to Wilderness is now available for purchase at the Museum.
