Macaulay Heritage Park

‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌‌Macaulay Heritage Park is an attractive historic site featuring many points of interest: Macaulay House, built in 1830 and restored to the mid-1850s; the historic former Church of St. Mary Magdalene, now a museum; the old St. Mary Magdalene Parish Cemetery; Heritage Gardens and the Carriage House. Together they comprise beautiful parkland for visitors to enjoy.

Reverend William Macaulay was originally sent to this area as a missionary. In 1823 he organized the Parish of Hallowell, donating the land for the church and paying for much of its construction from his own personal wealth. Reverend Macaulay’s contributions to the community were not only spiritual, but civic—dispersing his property for the construction of both a school and a courthouse; the latter has been in use since 1831.

Macaulay was also instrumental in the naming of the town of Picton.

 

Parc du patrimoine de Macaulay, nommé en l'honneur du révérend William Macaulay, est un site historique attrayant avec de nombreux points d'intérêt: la maison Macaulay, l'ancienne église Sainte-MarieMadeleine, aujourd'hui musée; l'ancien cimetière paroissial de Sainte-MarieMadeleine; Jardins du patrimoine et maison de transport. Ensemble, ils créent un magnifique parc pour les visiteurs.

Aucun service bilingue n’est offert sur ce site. Cependant, une visite sans guide est proposée en français.
