Military Compound

The central location of the former British military headquarters illustrates the importance of the infantry garrison in early Fredericton. Now a pleasant park known as Officers' Square, the old parade ground is the site of the former officers' quarters, a three-storey stone building with white arches, constructed in 1839 with additions in 1851. Further west, the Guard House (1827) and soldiers' barracks with red-painted wooden terraces have been restored and refurnished.
