Loyalist House was constructed from 1811 to 1817 by David Daniel Merrit, a Loyalist from Rye, New York. The oldest building in the city of Saint John, it survived the Great Fire of 1877 due to servants surrounding it with wet towels. The Merrit family continuously occupied it for nearly 150 years, and in 1959 it was acquired by the New Brunswick Historical Society.
