History: In 1604 Samuel de Champlain discovered Saint John, but the first lasting settlement was made by British colonists in 1762. After the American Revolution, 14,000 Loyalists fled the new United States and arrived in Saint John in 1783. The “Great Fire” occurred in June, 1877 and most of Saint John was destroyed. It was rebuilt in stone and has an interesting collection of turn-of-the-century architecture.
