Very well preserved 18th century home of interest to Americans because it was built by Loyalists fleeing the Amer. revolution

We went to the New Year's Levee (Open House) at the Loyalist House and just loved it. The food was wonderful, the people were all really nice, there were musicians playing in front of the fireplace and several people floating around in period costume telling us really interesting things about the house, the furniture and the 1800's in St. John....

I was in St. John on a cruise and walked up the road to visit this house. $5 admittance fee. Guide (Ron?) was excellent and provided a lot of information. Worth a visit. Andrew

Detailed tour, great guide. Tour guide took time to take individual items that you usually have to stay behind the barrier for our inspection. Interesting insights like pointing out the newspaper used to line trunks had to be used to reconstruct records after the Saint John fire. Included history of how US cities like Boston and St John were interlinked.... More

We were the only ones in the house and our tour guide was amazing! She was very informative and knew her history inside and out. There are so many little gems in this house that I would visit again in a second. Allow two hours for touring, if you get a guided tour, and so that you can do a... More

We appreciated the detailed and insightful tour given by the guide; she provided interesting details about the owners, home, and furnishings, as well as the early days of Saint John. It is well worth the time and small admission price.

We found this place by accident. Very interesting history of the Loyalists and how Canada and the USA were connected, especially how Boston and St. John share lots of history together!! The tour guide (I believe her name was Kathy) was very knowledgeable and passionate about giving you all of the history.

My husband and I very much enjoyed the old furnishings and were very much surprised that it was able to survive the great fire of 1877. We had a very knowledgable guide who gave us a great eperience. I have told my daughter that this would be a wonderful project for her at school. It was also not too expensive,... More

We (5 adults)visited recently and were taken round by a knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We were able to take photos and videofilm. Our guide gave a vivid insight into life in that era. Thoroughly recommended and not expensive or crowded.
