Small Arms in the Fredericton Region Museum, Rifles and Shotguns

The Fredericton Region Museum, formerly known as the York Sunbury Museum, is a small, non-profit museum founded in 1934 by the York Sunbury Historical Society. The museum was housed in several different locations until 1959, when it moved into Officers' Square on Queen Street in Fredericton, New Brunswick.  The Fredericton Region Museum focuses on preserving the history of the York and Sunbury region as well as central New Brunswick.  The museum possesses a large and diverse collection of artefacts, including an extraordinary firearms collection, a few of which are illustrated here.  The firearms have all been deactivated.

Photos of the small arms found in the museum are by the author and as credited.
