Bed and Breakfast A Tanners Home Inn Bed and Breakfast
190 King Steet East, E2L 1H1 Saint John, Canada –
The Tanners Home, 190 King Street East, Saint John N.B. (Information supplied with thanks by Harold Wright, Brad Keith and City of Saint John) The hill at King Street East and Wentworth was once the location of a British military blockhouse, which guarded the inner harbour of Courtenay Bay. The current house was built in 1877 or 1878 by William Peters, who owned the Peters Tannery business with his two brothers and father. At around the same time, his father, C. H. Peters was building a house for himself at the northeast corner of Wentworth and Leinster (now the Cavanaugh Funeral Home). The tannery was located along Courtenay Bay (around the current location of Wasson's Pharmacy). There had been a previous house on the site which had burned down in the Great Fire in June, 1877. Scorched bricks can still be found beneath the basement floorboards. The Great Fire had burned only as far north as the south side of King Street and you can still see today how the south side of the street has more brick houses than the north side. The people who had to rebuild were determined not to get caught again. The house was originally lit by gas.
