John E. Fillmore House I
91 York Street, Sackville, N.B.

JOHN E. FILLMORE HOUSE I
c.1901

This lot and the adjacent ones at 93 and 95 York Street were acquired by John E. Fillmore from Charles Pickard in 1901. Fillmore worked as a building contractor in Sackville for over 50 years. He build the houses that stand on these three lots c.1901. When he died in 1941 the properties were left to his two daughters. In 1961 the surviving daughter, Mabel Fillmore, sold them to D.W. Wilkinson who in turn sold them to lawyer Mark Yeoman in 1964. In 1975 this property at 91 York was bought by the present owners.

The house is of simple design with the gable end facing the street. There is a two-storey gable projection on the west side. The portico at the main entrance and an extension at the rear of the house are relatively recent additions.


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