Bar Road

Bar Road: Flag station on the Canadian Pacific Railway: now within town of Saint Andrews: Saint Andrews Parish, Charlotte County: in 1898 Bar Road had a population of 12: today Bar Road is a dispersed community. Ref: COMMUNITY PLACE NAMES IN NEW BRUNSWICK, CANADA, compiled by Robert F. Fellows

The Bar Road was so named from the road that crossed the bar at low tide, from Ministers Island to St. Andrews. This is an interesting feature that turned the Island into a peninsula, twice daily. It is said that Mr. VanHorne, who was responsible for building the railroad, had a stop made near the bar, so that he could get off at his summer home.
