Government House  

1451 Barrington Street
Halifax Nova Scotia,

Have you read Thomas Raddal’s novel The Governor’s Lady? It tells the story of Sir John Wentworth, the Loyalist governor of New Hampshire and his racy wife Fannie. The Government House was built for Wentworth and his wife between 1799 and 1805. This house has since been the official resident of the province’s lieutenant governor.

It is North America’s oldest consecutively occupied government residence, since the US’s White House was evacuated and burned during the War of 1812. It is made of Nova Scotian stone and has been restored to its original elegance.

Walk by the home at 1451 Barrington Street; this house is not open to the public.
