Commissariat House

Built by British Military Engineers in 1818-1820, Commissariat House is the last original, intact structure that was part of an extensive British military complex in St. John’s – a complex that originally included Fort Townshend (where The Rooms provincial art gallery, museum, and archives is located today), Fort William (today a hotel), Signal Hill, Fort Amherst, and gun batteries up and down the coast. Commissariat House is still one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in the province.
