Sainte-Anne-de-Kent is a settlement in New Brunswick Centered on Route 134 and Route 475. Other Routes in this community include Route 11 and Route 505. The community includes a regional hospital called Stella-Maris-De-Kent Hospital.HistorySainte-Anne-de-Kent was originally developed around the site of a waterworks facility in the late 19th century. Alderman Jean Egan suggested the nearby Hungerford Hill, now commonly known as "Le Reservoir Hill". In the years following the creation of the waterworks the community began to purchase more land in the surrounding area and the spot became a resort serviced by steamers to and from Saint John via the Saint John River.On May 24, 1881 the steamer "Sainte-Anne" capsized killing 182 people which instantly cut steamer travel along the Saint John River and scaled back the popularity of the waterworks grounds. Afterwards the grounds could still be reached by carriage and eventually horse drawn bus but interest would not recover for years.During the year 1896 the Sainte-Anne Railway constructed and began service of a street car system to take people to and from Sainte-Anne-de-Kent in record amounts.
