St. Stephen in New Brunswick.
St. Stephen is a town in Charlotte County, New Brunswick, situated on the east bank of the St. Croix River.
Historically a lumber and ship building economy until the early part of the 1900s, by the end of World War II the town's main employers were the Ganong Bros. Limited chocolate company (established 1873, Canada's oldest candy company), and the second largest textile mill in Canada built in 1882 on the river where it operated with its own hydro-electric generating station, the Milltown Dam. In 1957, the textile mill closed but the confectionery maker remains a key employer.
Every August since 1985, the town plays host to the week-long Chocolate Fest, celebrating their rich and delicious heritage. That spotlight on the wonder of chocolate resulted in the opening of the Chocolate Museum in 1999 and its expansion as a Chocolate Discovery Centre in 2009.
In 2000 St. Stephen was given the title of "Canada's Chocolate Town."
