Administrative history

The Woman's Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) originated in Owen Sound, Ontario, in 1874. Under the leadership of Letitia Youmans, a national association was formed in 1885. The Saint John branch located in Portland and later North End of Saint John, New Brunswick. It was organized in 1877 as the Gospel Temperance Union. The organization constructed and maintained the Union Hall, 361 Main St. The building was demolished in 1980.

The WCTU campaigned principally for the prohibition of alcoholic beverages. It also advocated female suffrage, sex hygiene and mothers allowances.
