- Baker Brook, New Brunswick
Baker Brook (2006 population: 525) is a Canadian village in Madawaska County, New Brunswick.
It is located on the Saint John River 20 kilometres west of Edmundston.
The village takes its name from 19th-century sawmill businessman John Baker.
In 1818, Baker, a native of Maine, settled in the area, along with several other American families. He was dissatisfied with the official borders, and in 1827 declared the village to be capital of the "Republic of Madawaska". He was subsequently jailed for treason.
