160 York Street
This grand former single family dwelling and its block mates provide an interesting case study in late 19th century Fredericton architecture. These three fine homes (160/176/180 York Street) represent unique examples of three key styles in the city’s architectural lexicon. This building, now housing a funeral home, was built circa 1905 and later became an inn which was a favorite haunt of Lord Beaverbrook. The ornate Classical frontispiece with its huge colonnaded portico and solid veranda with balustrade are pure turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts, and much of the original interior has been retained including rich wooden ornamentation and fireplaces in each room.
