18th-century merchant's house

Rebuilt in 1743 after a fire, this merchant's house survives from Kingston-upon-Hull's international trading heyday.

The exterior of the House appears very plain but this simplicity is a typical feature of Palladian architecture. The present stone steps and railings at the front entrance were designed by Mr. Johnson in a Georgian style.

Inside you will see delicate wrought-iron balustrade to the stairs and gallery. On the wall above the stairs is a niche containing a statue of Ceres, the goddess of the harvest, by Cheere and on the opposite wall is a plaque representing the philosopher John Locke.

Note: Maister House is occupied by tenants. The entrance hall and staircase are open to the public.
