Maison Tait House History
Our establishment was built in 1911 and has been designated as a Historical Heritage Site. Drawing inspiration from the neo-Queen Anne and neo-Italian styles, it is a perfect example of a country gentleman’s residence and of those found in areas at the beginning of the 20th century.
This site has added heritage value owing to the importance of its original owner. From the early 1870s until the mid 1940s, the Chesley Tait family business (1857-1938) developed a potato production and export industry, which for many years changed the economic history of several villages in the southeastern part of the province. The Tait family built its fortune in the potato industry and is considered the pioneer in that industry in New Brunswick.
