Ministers Island is an enchanting place to experience. Lying just off the shore near St. Andrews, New Brunswick, Canada, this 500-acre island is only a part-time island. You reach it by driving over the seafloor approximatey one kilometer (1/2 mile). Once there, you are immersed in an experience from the late 19th and early 20th century – the summer estate of Sir William Van Horne, the driving force behind the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Sir William’s vast house, his equally large barn and his bathhouse/artist’s hideaway are on view, as are the beautiful carriage lanes through the woods and fields.
