As I was driving east on Route 7 on my way to New Glasgow I came to the little town of Lake Charlotte where I found this roadside attraction. It is a retro 1940’s village that takes you back in time. Most of these buildings were transported here from other parts of the province. Admission for seniors was only $6 so I ponied up some cash and went in to check it out. Many of the buildings were open but I only went in a few of them.
This was inside the Hocking General Store (Entrance)
The Village garage and gas station:
And by the way, up here in Canada Esso is still called Esso, not Exxon.
The Clam Harbour United Church:
The Little Harbour one room schoolhouse:
The Family barn/garden shed:
The ice house:
The residence (Webber House):
The Norm Hutt boat house:
And the fisherman’s storehouse:
There was also a dining hall which served food but I was there before it opened.
If you like what you see grab your passport and get up here Saturday, October 10, 2019 for the 16th Annual Atlantic Canada Harmonica Festival!
