It was later the home of Hon. A. G. Blair Premier of New Brunswick (1883-1896).
The home is also known as Fiddlehead Cottage because of the fiddle head shapes in the carving on the porch.
785, 806 and 809/811 George Street in Fredericton all incorporate portions of pre-1844 Odell estate “cottages”.
Poet Bliss Carman is believed to have been born in a portion of 809, which was substantially renovated in the 1880’s by Hon. A.G. Blair, Premier of New Brunswick from 1883-1896. Blair utilized a rich palette of Picturesque Queen Anne Revival elements, particularly evident on the busily asymmetric, yet visually balanced George Street façade.
