Noah's Ark

Worth a detour, but people do live here and it's private property. Lots of rabbits jumping around outside the Ark added to the atmosphere!

Noah's Ark

A pastor in Florenceville, NB had a vision that he was supposed to build an ark and start a school, so he did. This is a huge "replica" of Noah's Ark and serves as the dormitory for the Christian college that the pastor started. It's even complete with portholes. If you go there, just be careful climbing up the stairs on the outside - they were a bit rickety when we visited.
