This beautiful building was built in 1890 and was a private home for many years. After the last resident homeowner, the building became the Board of Health for the City of Saint John, and was then turned into apartments.

The historic name of this building is “The Robert Thomson Residence”. It is a two-storey, brick, Queen Anne revival home with an off-centre entrance and a round tower with a conical roof. It is located on Mecklenburg Street in the Trinity Royal Heritage Preservation Area of Saint John.

Built in 1890, the Robert Thomson Residence is recognized for its elaborate architecture and for being among the fine residences that surround Queen Square. The streets that surround Queen Square boast some of the finest residences in Saint John. The Robert Thomson Residence is a good example of brick Queen Anne revival residential architecture from this era in Saint John.

Heritage value is also recognized through its association with Robert Thomson. Robert was born in 1842, the son of William Thomson, founder of the firm of William Thomson & Company, well-known ship owners and agents of Saint John. He filled a prominent place in the commercial and social life of Saint John. His enterprise and that of his firm gave the city worldwide prominence. Robert died at this residence in 1914. Robert’s daughter Mabel was inducted into the New Brunswick Sport’s Hall of Fame as a golfer. Mabel was a champion golfer at many golf competitions throughout Canada.

Whether it’s for a night, a week, or an extended visit, let your stay in Canada’s first city be as unique as Saint John itself.
