Keswick Ridge 1875

The settlement on Keswick Ridge during the latter years of the 19th century was typical of most rural New Brunswick communities. A poetic picture of life during this period was give by the Rev. David Coburn M.A., (b. 1870, son of William Coburn) in a collection of poems entitled Keswick Ridge In 1880. His poems and the reminiscences of Evelyn Gordon and Harry Grant (On The Ridge In Macnaquac County 1975 Centennial Print and Litho Ltd Fredericton, NB.) provide a vivid picture of life on the Ridge.
