With the Kennebecasis and Hammond Rivers serving as two of Quispamsis? boundaries, much of the early history can be found alongside these rivers, which provided the main source of transportation, livelihood, and recreation, the latter which remains true to this day. This publication provides a compilation of wonderful stories and documented facts from recorded bits and pieces, to extensive research at the provincial archives, libraries and historical museums, along with detailed accounts from our most valuable resource, our oldest residents and individuals who have had a long association with Quispamsis. We hope you enjoy Quispamsis, A Historical Sketch, as it takes you back to another, more simpler time, presenting an appreciation of how Quispamsis has evolved from its rural country setting to one of the fastest growing communities in New Brunswick today.
