Decyzją Komisji Majątkowej, Warmińska Kapituła Katedralna w pierwszej połowie lat 90-tych odzyskała kanonie zewnętrzne we Fromborku. Kurie kanoniczne, domy fromborskich kanoników z początku XIV w. to unikatowe obiekty zabytkowe w skali całego kraju. W kanonii św. Stanisława, św. Michała Archanioła i św. Piotra była siedziba PTTK.

Kurie fromborskie są jedynym w swoim rodzaju architektonicznym zespołem w północnej Polsce. Kurie - domy fromborskich kanoników to budowle nawiązujące do stylu polskich dworków o bogatym wyposażeniu wnętrz i usytuowaniu w ogrodach. Pierwsza wiadomość o kanoniach została zawarta w przywileju lokacyjnym Fromborka z roku 1310.
