CAPTAIN PETER HANSON HOUSE
1897

Built in 1897, this house is an excellent example of the Queen Anne Revival style. The front façade, clad with wooden shingles in many distinctive patterns, is asymmetrical and includes two-story bays, with the second bay supporting a triangular pediment at the roof line. It is painted in yellow shades typical of the Victorian period. Spindles and other ornamentations are found decorating the dormer and inset porch.

The original owner, Peter Hanson, was born in Sweden, and spent many years as a sea captain before settling in Sackville where he became a noted businessman and politician; he also served for 24 years as Customs Collector for the Port of Sackville.
