About the Building

The John T. Williston House is designated a Provincial Historic Site for its architecture and for its association with its original owner.

Built by mason Andrew Currie in 1824, the John T. Williston House is an excellent example of the fine well-proportioned 2 storey Georgian houses built in the Miramichi area of New Brunswick during the early nineteenth century by prominent merchants of the time. It is one of the oldest buildings in the area and its rectangular layout and overall symmetry reflect the original design.

The John T. Williston House is also recognized for its original owner: John T. Williston. A merchant and lawyer born at Bay du Vin, NB in 1791, he was a Member of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, and held the post of Deputy Treasurer of Customs.
