The boundaries of Saint Patrick Parish are shown
by the heavy red lines. The boundaries in Passama-
quoddy Bay do not represent actual boundary
lines per se; rather, they are intended to show that
the islands are part of Saint Patrick Parish.

The gray lines are 67W longitude and 4515' N
latitude and are accurate within about plus or
minus two widths of the lines. They also indicate
the boundaries of the corresponding maps in the
National Topographic System (see below).

For a larger view showing the whole county, see
the Charlotte County Map.

The map was redrawn by Craig Walsh based on 
a scanned map provided by Arnie Krause. Click

National Topographic System:
The Canadian government produces an excellent series of high quality topographic maps at a scale of 1:50 000 with 10 metre contour intervals. Individual houses, churches, schools and cemeteries are also marked in rural areas (which is all of Saint Patrick Parish), although some do get missed. For more information, see the Centre for Topographic Information, which is part of Natural Resources Canada.(1)

Saint Patrick Parish is unfortunately situated right on one of the grid intersections, so four maps are needed for full coverage. The map numbers and names are:
