Kings Landing Historical Settlement
Kings Landing Historical Settlement Review
When the Mactaquac Dam was created in the 1960s, a number of historically important buildings were saved and moved to a new shore. Restored and furnished, they created a living-history museum in the form of a typical Loyalist settlement of 1790 to 1900. The winding country lanes and meticulously restored homes are populated with costumed docents who accurately portray the society and lifestyles of the era. It's interesting to compare the life of the wealthy owner of the sawmill to that of an immigrant farmer. Various "Heritage Workshops" allow visitors to try 19th-century trades, including processing wool and preparing herbal remedies from the plants in the lanes and gardens, and summer camps encourage children to dress in period costume, attend a one-room schoolhouse, and learn the chores, games, and mannerisms of 19th-century youth. There are daily productions in the theater, barn dances, and strolling musicians. Hearty meals and heritage ales are served at the Kings Head Inn.
