11 Harbour Terrace, Saint John, NB E2K 5S8

Since 1777

Historical Landmark, British Army Fortification, Blockhouse and Barracks, British Army Troops and Royal Navy Sailors, National Historic Site, Monuments, Towering Rock, The Caledonia Terrane, The Brookville Terrane & The Kingston Terrane

It is located approximately 250 metres to the northeast of the original structure - The fort initially held eight cannons, barracks for 100 men, two blockhouses, and an outer wall composed of fascines, sticks and sod

We knew the Norwegian Gem was scheduled to leave St. John at 7:00pm, so we went up to the lookout to watch it sail. The view of the city, harbor...everything, was excellent! We enjoyed watching the ship turn around in the harbor and set sail. Only a handful of cars so it was very peaceful. We returned to the lookout the next evening to take pictures with the large Saint John sign.

Touring the tower is a must when visiting Saint John.. The guide onsite is very well informed on the history of the tower and happy to answer any questions and explain the history. The inside of the tower is as impressive as the outside and includes the setup of the bunks, tables and firing chutes. The views from the top of the tower are beautiful. Definitely worth the time to explore the site.

Most excellent house; the original family owned it from when it was built until 1959, and they seem to have rarely redecorated or thrown anything away. Which means that there are a lot of family original furnishings, and interesting stories even where the furnishings weren't original (e.g. the master bed -- they replaced the original with one that a visiting Royal had slept in people weren't much different then from now). The guide was knowledgeable, able to answer just about any question asked.
