Braman's House - Belleisle Shore

History and Style:

This elegantly trimmed home was built by the Braman family in the latter part of the 19th century. It was built on land formerly owned by the Urquhart family, who were connected to the Bramans through marriage. The local post office was located on the Braman farm until rural delivery came to the area. This is one of the few homes that can still boast its original gingerbread trim, which has been repaired and lovingly maintained by the present owner. The original trim was made by a Mr. Mabee. The off-centre entrance is a feature that is rarely seen in other houses on the Peninsula and gives the home a very unique façade. The interior is modestly trimmed, but the original newel post and mantelpiece still grace its main hall and parlour.
