DescriptionLocated on Passamaquoddy Bay, St. Andrews was settled by United Empire Loyalists in 1783, following the American Revolution. Many of their white clapboard houses were dismantled, transported on barges from Castine, Maine, and reassembled; they can still be seen today.
At the turn of the 20th century St. Andrews-by-the-Sea flourished as Canada's first seaside resort town; the Fairmont Algonquin, a renowned hotel built in 1889, still stands as testament to that era. More than 250 homes in the historic district are more than 100 years old, and the heart of town still looks much as it did in early photographs.
