Tiny St. Stephen (pop 4800) is known for two things; its close ties to Calais (Maine) directly across the river and its history as "Canada's Chocolate Town". Ganong has made candy locally since 1873; the company is now operated by the fourth generation of the family.
St. Stephen is served by NB Route 1 and Route 170.
