Fe­bru­ary 25, 1880 A fire de­stroyed the New Brunswick leg­is­la­ture build­ing, Prov­ince Hall, in Fredericton. In­ves­ti­ga­tors de­ter­mined it was caused by a “reg­is­ter grate too close to the car­ry­ing tim­bers.” Plans for a new build­ing were al­ready in de­vel­op­ment be­fore the fire, this time for a build­ing of stone rather than wood. The new leg­is­la­ture opened in Fe­bru­ary 1882, with a grand ball to mark the oc­ca­sion.
