The Fredericton Region museum is excited to announce that this Saturday, April 18th at FredKid Fair we will be launching our Annual Colouring Contest!
This year’s focus for the Fredericton Region Museum’s colouring contest is that of the Ingraham Family. The Ingraham Family were Loyalists who remained loyal to the British during the American Revolutionary War. The family consisted of the mother Jerusha, the father Benjamin, and three children Hannah, John and Ira. In 1784 they fled New York and settled at St. Anne’s Point, which had been renamed Fredericton that year when it was chosen as the colony’s capital. Ira’s house can still be visited today at King’s Landing Historic Settlement.
