The house is a reproduction of Élie Thomas Jr.’s, which was built in 1936 and lived in until 1945. The Thomas’s employed a maid and a seamstress in their home. This family established in the Tracadie area lived in this village from the early 1800s. The men in this family were coopers from father to son.
The Élie Thomas house, in a bungalow style typical of the 1930’s, emphasizes this style mainly by its four-sided roof with dormer windows, the 1 1⁄2 storey and the veranda.
