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

For $5/adult and $2/child this is an affordable and interesting museum. The guide takes you through each room and explains how life was lived in that time period, how the house would have been run, and what various furniture/items were used for. I am always amazed at the ingenuity and practicality of that time. You also learn many interesting facts... More

We love historical buildings. At first we were worried when the “kid” giving the tour came up in basketball shorts and a t-shirt. We don’t expect period costumes but threw us. But he was a font of knowledge even when I asked question about Saint John.

This is a gem within the city that people forget about. This house is a quick reminder of the way live used to be. I recommend stopping by and enjoy the history and artifacts that this house has to offer.

We liked learning about the arrival of the first loyalists and how they lived. I am not a history buff but enjoyed seeing all the artifacts and walking through the house imagining what it used to be like. Our four year old found it a bit boring.

Wanted to see this, but it was closed. Walked right by the house, not realizing what it was. The house looked in disrepair. Would have liked to see the inside.

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.
