To fully appreciate the ambiance of Cantwell House, one must first know
the history behind the dwelling. The story begins with the fire of 1892,
which destroyed most of what is now downtown St. John's. After the fire,
there was a massive effort to restore the area and Queen's Road was one
of these areas affected. The house was built in 1893 by John and Mary
Cantwell and is believed to have been a boarding house from the beginning.
