This house, dating back to around 1841 and situated at 318 Brunswick Street in Fredericton, was long possessed by Thomas Temple. He was a notable figure in the community, known for his roles as a lumberman, sheriff, president of the Fredericton Branch Railway Company, member of the Legislative Assembly, and later a senator.
Thomas Temple was instrumental in the construction of the original St. John River railway bridge, connecting Fredericton and St. Mary’s (Devon) in 1887.
Exhibiting a Classical Revival porch and other distinctive features, the Thomas Temple house exudes a sense of elegance and sophistication that would have made it stand out amidst the simpler, early 19th-century houses nearby.
Currently, the edifice functions as a spa.
