92 Waterloo Row

This refined residence with its finials at the roof corners and robust, yet fluid, bargeboards is a good example of the impact and the application of Gothic Revival ideas in New Brunswick houses. There was a building on this lot leased to a blacksmith from Col. Shore in 1819, although it is uncertain whether the present house is one in the same. It is certain that the current house was purchased in 1874 by Dr. Thomas Harrison, who was born in Sheffield, New Brunswick, educated at Trinity College, Dublin, and the first native-born New Brunswicker to become President of UNB. It was purchased later by the Hon. John B. McNair, Premier, Chief Justice and then Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick.
