River Watch Update - April 21, 2014 1:10 p.m.

• Between 3-5:30 p.m. today you will see some ice coming through the community over the course of an hour and a half. This is from some side rivers that flow into the St. John River above Grand Falls. We do not anticipate any issues with this, but of course, will continuously monitor the situation.

• With the water levels continuously decreasing the VOLUNTARY EVACUATION is CALLED OFF.

• We, along with NB Power and EMO continue to monitor the river and ice jam today.

Welcome to the Village of Perth-Andover. Village Council welcomes you to take your time and browse this site to see what our beautiful community has to offer.

The Village population is 1,706. We are the home of many wonderful shops, businesses, restaurants, and small industrial businesses. Located in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains and spread over both sides of the St. John River, this historic village offers visitors experiences that will excite all five senses. See, hear, smell, taste and touch all the area has to offer.

Take the self-guided Cultural Walkway tour for a glimpse into the area’s Maliseet, English and Scottish heritage, or visit the Southern Victoria Historical Museum, located in an historic Methodist church from 1837, to touch and see the history of the village through artifacts and displays.

Depending on the season, you can explore the area with hiking, biking or cross-country skiing excursions on 3 local trail systems: the International Appalachian Trail, Trans Canada Trail and Sentier NB Trail. The village also sits on the edge of great hunting, fishing and wilderness areas.

Every Saturday in the summer, a local farmers market features the best of the region’s lands, woods and waters. Take the time to dine al fresco on a grassy riverbank, breathing in the fresh, unspoiled air while enjoying the bounty of the land.

Plan to stay at The Castle Inn, a bed & breakfast-style inn featuring spectacular fine dining and luxuriously appointed rooms. Don’t miss our many local events while you’re here, from the Larlee Creek Hullabaloo to the Gathering of the Scots, NB Pro Bass Tournament, Winter Carnival, Rocktober Fest, and Tobique (Negootkook) First Nation Powwow. Check our website for a calendar of local events.
