This building was centre-stage for the frustrations, fears and intrigues, which culminated in the union of British North America. It was here that Lieutenant Governor, Sir Arthur Hamilton Gordon, worked with pro-confederation advocates in Canada, as well as New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, to bring about our entry into Confederation. This National and Provincial Historic Site, built in 1828, is a place of history, culture, art and excellence.
