The historic streetscapes and preserved heritage areas of the City of Fredericton tell fascinating stories about the city’s rich and vibrant past. Fredericton contains one of only three National Historic Districts in New Brunswick (Historic Marysville) and administers the St. Anne's Point Heritage Preservation Area, just east of downtown. The preservation area’s distinctive buildings and streetscapes collectively illustrate the evolution of a neighbourhood over some 150 years.
Local Historic Places Initiative
A Local Historic Places Register is a list of properties in a community which have been formally recognized having historic value. Communities across Canada are developing local registers as part of a project called the Historic Places Initiative. By listing historically-significant places, a community formally recognizes its value, which works to help preserve it for future generations.
The establishment of Fredericton's Local Historic Places Register was approved by City Council in August 2003.
