Loyalist House, the former home of the Merritt family – loyalists who emigrated from the United States after the Revolutionary War – was constructed in 1817. It was one of the few surviving structures after the Great Fire of 1877. A National Historic Site, the home’s Georgian features remain largely untouched, including its original grand staircase – which remains as it was so many years ago. Acquired by the New Brunswick Historical Society in 1959, the home is an amazing example of the quality of early Saint John craftsmanship.
