3 Barbour’s General Store in Saint John, Canada

Barbour’s General Store appears to be a souvenir shop designed to attract tourists’ wallets. Don’t judge the contents by the quaint Victorian façade. The store was located in Sheffield, New Brunswick, from the 1860s until the 1940s. In the late 1960s, the store was moved here, reconditioned and converted into a museum by the G.E. Barbour Company. On display are everyday merchandise available from a general store in the late 19th century. In back is a tourist information desk. The knowledgeable staff can answer your questions, provide a detailed map and arrange excursions and guides. Make sure to ask for the free walking tours brochure. The excellent pamphlet has detailed descriptions of the city’s heritage buildings.
