Fred Tims House

Fred Tims House

In 1922, Fred Tims purchased the expansive Lynch property that fronted on Regent Street and stretched back towards York Street in Fredericton.

Timothy Lynch, who had conducted one of the largest lumbering operations on the Miramichi, settled in Fredericton during the 1870’s, purchasing a substantial parcel of land at what was then considered the back of town. The purchase of the Lynch property not only opened new building lots but paved the way for the extension of Aberdeen Street between York and Regent streets.

Fred Tims, a speculative builder who specialized in low-income housing, erected this house and other similarly styled dwellings along the newly extended Aberdeen Street.

One thought on “Fred Tims House

  1. Felt compelled to drop you a line as I am the Great Grandson of Fred Tims. I always felt a strong connection to Fredericton. I was born in Fredericton in 1954 and we lived on Charlotte Street in a two story two apartment right across the street from Puppy’s (Freds) three storey white apartment building. Both buildings were two of many he built on that street. Unfortunately my father Douglas Tims moved us to Ottawa in 1958 so ending our families contribution to Fredericton. I was not aware of this house on Aberdeen Street…. a pleasant surprise.
