Abbey Glenn Riverfront B&B, situated at 102 Waterloo Row in Fredericton, occupies a Georgian residence dating back to 1790. The land on which it stands was initially granted to Benedict Arnold, an American general from the Revolutionary War who is famously known for betraying his country, hence becoming a symbol for “traitor”. Arnold and his son Richard relocated to Saint John in 1785, where they dabbled in land speculation and established a trade enterprise with the West Indies. Arnold managed to amass vast stretches of land in the Maugerville area and also secured several urban lots in both Saint John and Fredericton.
Others who occupied the home: 1812-1858 Colonel George Shore, Surveyor-General of New Brunswick and Senator Muriel McQueen-Fergusson, first woman speaker of the Senate of Canada. The home no longer operates as a B&B.
