History and Style:

This home was probably built by Samuel Pierce circa 1800. It is built much like other homes of the same period in the area, except for its uniquely protruding dormer. This architectural style is commonly found in Shelburne, Nova Scotia, where it is typical of Loyalist period homes. This house has very little interior decoration, but there is a large central chimney that opened into a spacious brick oven and hearth, which is typical of the period in which it was built.
