Property Description

Formally St. Jude’s Anglican Church on the west side of Saint John, constructed approximately in 1859 lies this masterpiece waiting to be converted into a community marketplace, character enriched home, in-family multi-generational set-up, condominiums, office spaces, a creative community hub or a not-for-profit headquarters. The list truly is limitless to continue writing the history of this iconic former church on the corner. An original architectural design by G. Ernest Fairweather who was the son of architect and builder Edwin F. Fairweather, designed 15 churches, 9 schools/universities. He has also designed and constructed a hotel, orphanage, town hall, monument and a library. Needless to say, architect Ernest Fairweather was as civic-minded as he was talented. It is important to know where this church has been so you can appreciate where it can lead to. Arguably the centerpiece of any church is its bell. This one located at 319 Lancaster Street is the former Carleton Labourer’s bell a symbol early-on of the hardworking labour force that Saint John is still built around today. With original woodwork, scalloped detail surrounding the pews, colorfully stained glass windows, large gym complete with hardwood floors in addition to white paneled ceilings, all situated on a corner overlooking an open park with a faint yet clear ocean view, further emphasize that some homes have such a special history, living in them would feel like a great honour.
