Mary Point Great House 1965 photo by Frederik C. Gjessing

Mary Point Great House 2009

The remains of this old residence can be found on the Francis Bay Trail.

“Significance: Both the 1780 survey of St. John and the Oxholm map of St. John published in 1800 show a building on the site of the existing great house. The present building incorporates several late additions from this century. The date of construction of the older masonry structure has not been determined. Cornice & other architectural details imply an early 19th century date.” (Library of Congress)
