Situated at 203 Regent Street, this striking corner house stands out with its Greek Revival portico adorned with fluted Doric pilasters, reflecting the architectural aesthetics of Fredericton homes in the early 19th century. This handsome property is characterised by its gabled roof, hand-planed wood shingle cladding, and 6 over 6 single hung windows.
Constructed in 1833, the home was originally built for George Turner, a Loyalist descendant who worked as a waggoner and operated a stagecoach service from Fredericton to Saint John, and his wife, Catherine.
By 1868, this Neoclassical house was in the possession of Dr. Hiram Dow, a member of the New Brunswick Legislative Assembly and a practicing surgeon.
Around 1880, renovations to the house included the raising of the roof and the addition of another storey to the back wing.
