Town of Hartland

Hartland, the smallest town in New Brunswick, has a varied and interesting history.  It was known as “Mouth of the Guimac” until it was officially changed to “Hartland” about 1870.

Some say it was named in honor of Rev. Samuel Hart, an early Baptist minister; others say it is in honor of James Hartley, an early surveyor; while others say it was named because it was “the heart of the county.
