The impressive former residential property at 160 York Street, along with its neighboring structures, offers a fascinating glimpse into Fredericton’s architectural landscape in the late 19th century.
These three splendid residences (at 160/176/180 York Street) stand as unique illustrations of three primary styles in the city’s architectural repertoire. This particular building, erected around 1905, now accommodates McAdam’s Funeral Home. It was later transformed into an Inn which was frequented by Lord Beaverbrook.

Much of the original interior remains, featuring lavish wooden embellishments and fireplaces in each room.
