Ready to explore Uptown Saint John? Start across from Barbour’s General Store at the Domville Building. The façade has a handsome Second Empire design with Neoclassical features. This was the first major commercial building to open after the Great Saint John Fire of 1877. The name honors James Domville, a two-time member of the Canadian Parliament and a New Brunswick senator. The structure originally housed the Maritime Bank of Saint John. Today, it is a Bank of Montreal branch. You are now going to explore the Trinity Royal Heritage Conservation Area. Within several blocks are excellent examples of Saint John’s Victorian Era landmarks plus a few from the colonial period.
