Statement of Significance

Description of Historic Place

Frink House is a single storey Cape Cod residence located on Union Street in St. Stephen.

Heritage Value

Frink House is designated a Local Historic Place for its architecture and the association with its former occupants.

Frink House is recognized for its architecture. Built in circa 1800, it is a good example of Cape Cod residential architecture. It exhibits traditional elements of this style such as a five bay plan, overall symmetry and flush gable roof.

Frink house is also recognized for its association with former occupants. The first occupant was James Frink, son of Captain Nathan Frink who came with the Loyalists to St. Stephen in 1783. Celebrated St. Stephen cabinetmaker John Warren Moore and his wife, Mary Louisa Moore, lived in the house from 1833-1836. In 1897, John D. McMillan, a marble trader, became the next owner and the family occupied the house for 48 years. The present owner has retained the original style of the house.
