History and Style:

This house was built by Azariah Perkins between 1784 and 1789. Perkins was a loyalist from Connecticut who arrived in New Brunswick in 1783. There are reputed to have been twenty-seven babies born in this house, and it has remained in the possession of Perkins’ descendants to the present day. The house is a small one and a half story cottage typical of the small homes that would have been built by New Brunswick’s early settlers.
