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.
