history

The original name of the area was `Goolwagagek` a Mi`kmaq word meaning `haunt of the hooded seal`. In 1783 a group of loyalist soldiers known as the King`s Orange Rangers settled there. The village became a major ship-building community in which 500 sailing ships were built and launched to sail around the world. A disastrous fire on May 31, 1900 destroyed over 68 buildings in the village. However, the wealth of the shipbuilder has left a lasting architectural legacy in the grand homes that remain.
St. Martins was incorporated by an Act of the New Brunswick Legislature on November 9, 1967. more...
