Set amongst a stand of chestnut, maple and oak trees is the Palladian-style Government House. Built at the same time as the White House, but at four times the cost, the austere mansion (1831) with its prominent corner quoins and window surrounds is home to the province's lieutenant governor. The interior maintains original furnishings and is open for free tours (10:00 Wednesday and Thursday); you must book in advance.
Near Gower St, the 1820s late-Georgian mansion, Commissariat House, was used by the supplies officer of the British military. The house has been restored to 1830s style and contains many period pieces.
