This stately home was built by Gold Commissioner and prominent merchant Caspar Phair and his wife Cerise. It was named Longford House and designed in the same style as Mrs. Phair's ancestral home, Eyrecourt, in Ireland.
The Phair's eldest son, Artie, was the first non-native child born in Lillooet. The house became the home of Dr. Masajiro Miyazaki and his family in the mid 1940's. He donated the house to the Village of Lillooet in 1983.
