Kings Landing History -
Kings Landing Historical Settlement was created after the damming of the St. John River for the Mactaquac Dam in the 1960s. Historic buildings that would have been underwater were moved and restored. The project took several years, and in the end, resulted in Kings Landing. Here, 100 years of Canada's history are represented, from the 1780s to 1910. This was a time of great transition, from the Loyalist to the Victorian era.
