About frederictonregionmuseum

The Fredericton Region Museum was founded in 1934 by the York-Sunbury Historical Society. The Society was formed in 1932 and now has members from all over North America, however, most are from Central New Brunswick. In 1969 the Museum found permanent headquarters in the Officer's Quarters (571 Queen Street) in the heart of downtown Fredericton. The Society and Museum remain a nonprofit enterprise with a small paid staff and numerous volunteers. They work tirelessly to create informative exhibits, organize programs and events as well as publish a local history periodical The Officers' Quarters. The Fredericton Region Museum is the home of the famous Coleman Frog. He is the 42lb wonder that lived in the Killarney Lake just north of Fredericton about 100 years ago. The Fredericton Region Museum is a gateway into the exciting history and diverse heritage of central New Brunswick. Because central New Brunswick is where the provincial capital is located, and because it served as a meeting place for Aboriginals, Loyalists, Acadian, and other European settlers, the Fredericton Region Museum is an excellent place to start. With over 4000 square feet of exhibit space and a collection of over 30,000 artefacts the museum is a fun and exciting way to look into our past.

    I am particularly interested in The McKeen settler’s of Keswick Ridge. I would like to contact any male descendants of them to compare DNA results with. Can you help in anyway. I have visited the cemetery behind the church on Keswick Road a few years ago.

      To what church are you referring? Do you mean All Saints Anglican Church on the Crocks Point Road? Personally, I do not know any McKeens but there is a Dean McKeen listed on the Kee Road which is off the Keswick Ridge Rd. is number is 363-4296. Perhaps he can help you.

    Don’t know if my 1st message went through. To what church are you referring? All Saints Anglican Church on the Crocks Point Road? Personally, I do not know the McKeens but there is a Dean McKeen listed on the Kee Rd which runs off the Keswick Ridge Rd. His number is 363-4296.
