I've been visiting the Loyalist House since I was a little girl. I love it and so do my kids. The tour guides at the Loyalist House are great and very informative.

During our recent cruise, we had a port stop in Saint John. The Loyalist House shows what life was like in the early to mid 19th century.

You'll get to see how a rich family lived in early part of 19th century and learn some Saint John history as well. Furniture and rugs are gems and other artifacts very interesting as well.

Do go and see the Loyalist House while you are in Saint John, and if you live here, make it a point to visit. This is our history.
