162 – Throw-WAYYY-Back Thursday

Kings Landing Historical Settlement near Fredericton, New Brunswick allows you to fully immerse yourself in a historic village created in the 1960s, using buildings that would have otherwise been flooded because of the Mactaquac Dam.  It is an interactive experience that changes the way history is taught and if you have time to take in Thanksgiving Day and dinner at this historical site, you certainly will not be disappointed.  Pictured here is one of its key attractions, the sawmill, which was built new and fully operational in the 1970s.  For many years it has not been running, but just recently underwent restoration at a price tag of about 3.8 million dollars, and as someone that very much enjoys this little piece of New Brunswick, I have to say I’m very happy to hear.  Autumn colours in Kings Landing just add to the majesty.
