Restructuring of our Gift Shop was inspired by the early days of the General Store! The new layout of the gift shop will provide a clean shopping experience once our doors are open to the public.

McCloskey General Store, located here in Boiestown, is one with a rich history which dates back to 1819 when Patrick McCloskey, a 13 year old boy emigrated here from Ireland. The store began as a red chest (wonogan) filled with necessities to help those in Dalhousie, Campbellton and Belledune recovering from the Great Miramichi Fire in 1825. Through five generations of McCloskey’s, the store grew to be a local shop in the center of Boiestown, which sold everything from sewing needles to coffins. Today the store is owned by Belinda and Bill Wade and still offers a unique shopping experience.

The TBM Avenger Aircraft is out of the hanger and back for the summer!
.
.
Did you know that this plane was used for military purposes and years after it protected New Brunswick forests from wild fires? The museum received the plane in 2001, after it had crashed west of Blackville, NB. Over a three year period the plane was restored and on June 12th, 2004, it took its place across the road from the Central NB Woodmen’s Museum.

Bernice + Kristina were thrilled to meet Darren Dean and Brad Laughlin of the West Coast Lumberjack show today! They stopped by to check out the home of lumbermen, loggers, and lumberjacks and see how things are done on the East Coast.
