Our Town

The Town of St. George is known as “Granite Town” which pays homage to its once bustling granite industry around the turn of the last century. Today, red granite has been replaced by pink salmon as St. George is now the epicenter of the salmon aquaculture industry in New Brunswick.


Visitor Information Center

The Tourist Bureau is located at Granite Town Farms at 151 Brunswick Street and is open daily during the summer months from May to September 30.
