Mount Allison to renovate Hammond House for use as President's residence

October 23, 2012

Mount Allison University's Hammond House -- Sackville's only National Historic Site -- will undergo a $1.3-million renovation and restoration to return to its original purpose at the university and serve as the President's official residence. Built in 1896, Hammond House was acquired by Mount Allison in 1958, used as the President's residence until 1975, and then functioned as an administrative building until 2009. Hammond House will become the President's official residence in September 2013. Mount Allison says it will sell Cranewood, which has served as the President's residence since the institution acquired it in 1975. Mount Allison News
