This house was built in the 1770s by Felix O'Hara, making it the oldest heritage house in the Gaspé Peninsula.

It was later owned by Duncan McCallum, Anglican minister Francis de la Mare, and the firms of Elias Collas and Robin, Jones and Whitman. In 1931, it was purchased by Bishop François-Xavier Ross, who enlarged it and moved it to its current site at 172 Jacques-Cartier Street in Gaspé. In 1942, it became the residence of the bishop of the diocese.
