If you're interested in history, set aside some time to visit the Loyalist House. This Georgian structure was built in 1817 and originally belonged to British Loyalist Thomas Merritt. Those who visit the Loyalist House will find it filled with authentic 19th-century furnishings and décor. You are welcome to explore the house on your own, but many recent visitors recommend tagging along on a guided tour, which is included with your entrance fee. As one TripAdvisor user writes, "It doesn't take long to go through the house and the tour guide gives some useful information."
The Loyalist House is located in downtown Saint John near the Saint John City Market. Visitors are welcome on weekdays between 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from mid-May and the end of June and every day from July to mid-September. During the rest of the year, you will have to call ahead and make an appointment to tour the house. Admission is $5 CAD ($5 USD) for adults and $2 CAD for children. For more information, visit the Loyalist House website.
