Please note that as of May 2024, there is an ongoing road closure along Route 106 between Dorchester and Sackville. Visitors coming from Sackville can follow the detour route:

From Sackville’s Main Street find the beginning of King Street and proceed along it for 7.8 km (7 minutes) until King Street ends, and detour signs direct you to make a left turn onto Woodlawn Road. Follow Woodlawn Road another 5.7 km (5 minutes) until you reach a stop sign at Dorchester’s main intersection. Turn right to find Keillor House Museum a stone’s throw away at 4974 Main St., Dorchester. You’ll find St. James Textile Museum less than 100 meters to the north at 4967 Main St. with parking available via Station Road. 

The village of Dorchester, steeped in the historical beginnings of this country, is located at the head of the Bay of Fundy, nestled in the heart of the Maritimes just 25 minutes from Moncton. Dorchester, located on Route 106, can be accessed from the Trans Canada Highway via either the Memramcook Valley (Exit 482) or Sackville (Exit 504) with either route offering the spectacular scenery of the Fundy area.

A scenic coastal drive, Route 935, loops from Sackville to Dorchester via Rockport following the spectacular coastline of the upper Bay.

Included are the expansive mudflats at Johnson’s Mills and Dorchester Cape, the feeding grounds of hundreds of thousands of migrating shorebirds each July and August.
