Last but definitely not least, we’ve saved some time for shopping along Water Street where you’ll find many treasures, such as woolens, pottery, pewter, and glass in friendly and waterfront shops. St. Andrews was an important seaport in the early days of the Colony of New Brunswick, and, built in 1833, Pendlebury Lighthouse has lit the way for hundreds of vessels throughout history. Now, it’s the oldest remaining mainland lighthouse in New Brunswick. It gets its moniker from the name of the family that tended the light for almost 100 years.
