About Us

Fredericton Heritage Trust is a volunteer non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to promoting the preservation of the natural, historical, and architectural heritage of the Capital Region of New Brunswick.

The Trust has launched many successful endeavours over the years, including walking tour booklets of both Fredericton and Marysville and a restoration guidebook to Fredericton's residential architecture.

Annually, the Trust presents awards to businesses and individuals for their efforts in restoring and maintaining our architectural heritage. Various educational projects and programs are also ongoing regularly.

We have an active volunteer board and hold monthly meetings, typically at the Provincial Archives. These meetings are open to the public and any interested party is invited to attend.

The Trust welcomes new members and new ideas... Please contact us.

Our Mandate

  • To preserve, protect and promote the heritage of Fredericton and area.
  • To identify and recognize examples of heritage preservation.
  • To educate the public (especially children) as to the importance of our built and natural heritage.
