Base Gagetown Expropriation

Newspaper clippings about the Expropriation of land, in Sunbury and Queens County, New Brunswick, for the formation of the largest military base in the Commonwealth of Great Britain.

This event had a major impact upon the lives of the families who had been residents of these land in Queens and Sunbury Counties, for over a century and a quarter, as well as on all the families that were displaced. Some families welcomed the move, while others had a hard time adjusting. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of this event, a special association has been formed to gather the history and genealogy of the people effected.
