We ventured in as part of the historic walking tour, the Loyalist Trail, and what a pleasant surprise! We had an excellent guide who explained how people lived in the 1800s, making it come alive for us. All the more amazing because the house was preserved as-is for over 150 yrs. before becoming a museum (instead of a gas station!).

We went there only to learn of its recent renovation. Today the CBC covered it (Aug 19, 2016), "New rooms on display...". Some of my ancestors went to St. Andrews after the Revolutionary War so I wanted to see what happened in another place in NB. The guide wasn't familiar w St. Andrews but as a young guide she knew...

Most excellent house; the original family owned it from when it was built until 1959, and they seem to have rarely redecorated or thrown anything away. Which means that there are a lot of family original furnishings, and interesting stories even where the furnishings weren't original (e.g. the master bed -- they replaced the original with one that a visiting...

Our guide took us through room by room, explaining about the furniture, floors, portraits, family, the history of the time, and all of the many antiques in the home. It has been well taken care of and restored. We are so happy we stopped in. It was New Brunswick Day, so they served us cake and punch as well. I... More

This wood frame home is one of the few to survive the fire of 1877 in Saint John and presents an excellent picture of what the home of a Loyalist businessman would have been like in the 1800's. Luckily, after being neglected by the province for some time, it's been lovingly restored inside and out. We had an excellent guided... More

SPOILER ALERT!!! House is completely closed and covered for renovations that will not be complete until some time is June 2016. Couldn't even get a picture of it.

The house and furnishings give a good look at the life of the first Loyalists to arrive in the area. The admission to get in is very reasonable. We had a guided tour through the house with a very informative and knowledgeable person who explained the life of the people that lived there back in the 1800's. There are many... More

This is the elderly house that represents the French population which was not very strong in the old days. Our guide considered them a virtual dying breed since their early entry into St. John's in New Brunswick. Canada
