160 York Street

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.
