The house was built circa 1838 for Able Sands, a British officer, who later married the daughter of General Timothy Ruggles. The Youngs were shipbuilders. The Crown Jewel was built in 1868 for the troop fleet. The wall paintings in the home were done by Mr. Colin Young, circa 1880. He had studied at Acadia. The murals are all located in what was then Colin's bedroom.
The present owner is Colin's nephew, Mr. Lorin Young. Although there was much talk in the family about these murals they were not uncovered until 1970 when wallpaper was removed.
