Christ Church Cathedral Clergy Residence

Christ Church Cathedral Clergy Residence

This refined Gothic Revival house, located at 231 Church Street in Fredericton, was built in 1876 by local builder Charles Moffatt for Christ Church Cathedral as a residence for the assistant clergyman. 

The exterior boasts lovely bargeboards and a pendant at the roof apex, which was originally topped by a finial in the shape of a cross, denoting the house’s connection to the Church. The cross was removed in the 1940’s. The wonderfully proportioned off-center entry porch is enhanced by carved spandrels that combine to create a delicate modified gothic arch over the front entrance.
