Description:
Pemberton Ridge is a Canadian rural community in York County, New Brunswick.

It is situated 6 kilometres north of Forest City on a hill overlooking East Grand Lake and Spednic Lake.

In the early 1860s it was called "Skedaddle Ridge" because of settlers from Maine who fled there to avoid draft into the American Civil War. Some of the settlers include the Leeman and MacKenney families, of which descendants are still living there. In its heyday, Pemberton Ridge probably had a population of 15–20 families comprising 75–100 residents.

The community never had a post office but relied on services in Forest City, as well as rural delivery. The farming community did not have a church but did have a school house and occasionally church services were held in that building. While the larger centers of Canterbury, (34 kilometres) or Danforth (30 kilometres) provided access to the Canadian Pacific Railway, as well as other commodities such as farm supplies and consumer items, Forest City was the service centre for the community.

Church and Sunday School was usually held in the school house, although residents would occasionally attend a meeting at Green Mountain or Forest City. Predominantly Baptist by faith, meetings or services as they were sometimes called, contained an aura of quiet tranquility and not given to emotional renditions, testimonial or otherwise.

Today the community is home to a population of approximately 10 residents.
