History of Mactaquac Dam

Keep a eye on this page and our News page for notices regarding updates to the story of the Mactaquac Dam. We are interested in stories from members of the community who remember the construction, its impact on them, or any other stories related to the dam. If you have any stories to contribute to our site, please submit them to us at webmaster@keswickridge.ca.



The construction of the Mactaquac Dam had an enormous impact on the Keswick Ridge area. Not only did the construction and related projects influence the local economy, but an entire village (Jewetts Mills) was displaced; many other family homes were also moved or demolished.





The Mactaquac Baptist Church, which had been a focal point in the community, was destroyed.
