|The village of Dorchester, steeped in the historical
beginnings of this country, is located at the head of the Bay of Fundy,
nestled in the heart of the Maritimes just 25 minutes from Moncton.
Dorchester, located on Route 106, can be accessed from the Trans Canada
Highway via either the Memramcook Valley or Sackville exits with either
route offering the spectacular scenery of the Fundy area.
A scenic coastal drive, Route 935, loops from Sackville to Dorchester
via Rockport following the spectacular coastline of the upper Bay.
Included are the expansive mudflats at Johnson's Mills and
Dorchester Cape, the feeding grounds of hundreds of thousands of
migrating shorebirds each July and August.
Regardless of the route traveled, the Village of Dorchester
awaits you, rich in human and natural history. A haven for the historian, a
niche for the naturalist, a waypoint for the weary traveler, Dorchester has
preserved its past and sense of community. Descendants of the first inhabitants
and a flavor of their way of life still imbues the Old Shire Town of
Dorchester, New Brunswick.
