Also see . . .  Legislative Assembly Building. This stone building with impressive dome has served as the seat of government in New Brunswick since 1882. A notable spiral staircase and portrait gallery of former Lieutenant Governors greets visitors in the main entrance. The chamber reflects the taste of the late Victorians with a brass chandelier, oriental-style carpet and Speaker's chair set on a dais under a canopy bearing a carving of the Royal Coat of Arms.
