CHRISTOPHER MILNER HOUSE
c.1850

A brick house built by Charles Dixon is said to have stood on this site and to have been torn down by Christopher Milner to make way for this three storey house which was constructed around 1850. Milner was a lawyer and the first Sackville postmaster from 1849 to 1867.

Christopher Milner's son W.C.Milner inherited the house which was subsequently bought by Albert E. Wry in 1904.

The original design of the house is difficult to discern as it was extensively renovated in the 1890s. The Palladian window on the gable end is matched by another in the central of the three dormers at the front of the house. The dormers are probably a later addition. A large verandah surrounds the front and sides of the house.

This building is within the Town of Sackville Municipal Heritage Conservation Area A.
