Moncton or Hub City is a Canadian city located in Westmoreland County, New Brunswick, in the Petitcodiac River Valley. Moncton gained the nickname of Hub City thanks to its central location in the valley. The area in which Moncton is located was settled in 1733, but the city of Moncton was officially founded just in 1766 by Pennsylvania Dutch immigrants of Philadelphia.
In the beginning, Moncton was a farming community. In 1855, it was first incorporated and named in honor of a British officer. Moncton is famous for being mentioned several times in the Twilight Zone and in Taking Lives, a 2004 movie starring Angelina Jolie. Barenaked Ladies have a song called Enid, inspired by a waitress in a Moncton pub and this mention also made the city more popular in Canada and in the world.
