The Buttery

The premises of Old Government House in Fredericton were once graced with a variety of supplementary structures such as a wash house, coach house, stable, cow house, guardhouse, sentry box, well house, and a food storage building known as the Buttery.

The Buttery

Among these, the only structure that still stands on the site is the Buttery. This unique round stone building, distinguished by its conical, tapering roof, holds a special place on the grounds. Though its precise year of construction remains uncertain, it’s speculated to have been built before 1838.

  1. Is there a window in this building?

    Is it know if this was promarily used for dairy products (I assume in the summer) or if it was more for general storage of many foods?

    Has the building had any renovations in the last forty or so years.

    Thank you for any assistance you can dive.

    1. Hi Dale,

      Yes there is a window in the building. We added another photo to the post that we had showing it. It was a cool place to store food year round. The building has a new roof added. The photos were taken in 2013.
