Meet one of New Brunswick’s most colourful settlers when she shows up at the country market in full period costume. Charlotte Taylor’s life and times are chronicled in The Nine Lives of Charlotte Taylor by Sally Armstrong. Three times married, the “Mother of Tabusintac” struggled to raise her large family in harsh 19th-century conditions. Many of her descendents still live in Tabusintac today, and while she serves and shares a hearty breakfast, she’ll let you in on her secrets and introduce you to modern-day friends, relatives and vendors. Join the quilting circle to chat with the experts working on Charlotte’s quilt and head to the local museum to learn more about her fascinating life. Complete your visit with a trip to the nearby lighthouse to see the beautiful riverside spot where Charlotte established her home.
