Legend says a Chieftain set off to find a River of Fire, a place free of war and sickness. He discovered our river at sunset, ablaze in brilliant red, and settled here. A visit to the Richibucto River Museum will give you the complete story, and tell you of our first settlers, Eastern Canada’s Mi’kmaq First Nation.
