Nova Scotia architectural heritage

St. John's Anglican Church in Lunenburg, which is now a UNESCO Heritage site, was built of wood between 1754 and 1763 in the style of a New England meeting house. Later alterations have earned it the epithet "Carpenter Gothic." Damaged in 2001 by fire, it has been restored.

The Quaker Whaler house in Dartmouth, above right, dates back to 1785. Built by William Ray, it follows the Nantucket style of his original home. Below left is St. George's Round Church in Halifax built in the unique Palladian style, as is the seat of government, Province House, right.
