Quispamsis is one of New Brunswick’s fastest growing town, situated along the breathtaking Kennebecasis River and Hammond River waterways. This picturesque suburban community is located in southwestern New Brunswick, 22 km (13.7 miles) northeast of the City of Saint John. The short distance from the Fundy Fog belt and the cool breezes of the Atlantic Ocean permit warmer temperatures during spring and summer.
This progressive, vibrant community has many attractive residential opportunities for all types of family units. Abundant recreational areas, quality schools, places of worship, retail and professional services are all within the Kennebecasis Valley.
The original inhabitants were the proud Maliseet First Nation, part of the great Algonquin Federation. The name "Quispamsis" was translated from the Maliseet language and means "little lake", representing present-day Ritchie Lake. Acadian, British pre-Loyalists and Loyalists settled in the area around 1783, with many receiving land grants along the Kennebecasis and Hammond Rivers. In 1998 Quispamsis amalgamated with the former Village of Gondola Point and a portion of the area formerly known as Wells.
