INFORMATION:

The Wambolt Building is also a Registered Historic property by the Canadian government. It consists of 6 commercial spaces some of which are currently leased. The building is the largest commercial structure in “downtown” Lunenburg.

112-118 Lincoln Street is valued as an example of commercial architecture in Old Town Lunenburg and as an integral addition to the Lincoln Street streetscape. Built in 1907, this building was first owned by Lemuel Wambolt, a Lunenburg tinsmith who had developed a large clientele on the south shore of Nova Scotia over the previous twenty years. It has been used for a variety of businesses since that time, including a general store and a drycleaner. The building retains many original features, including large storefront windows, the doors on the Lincoln Street façade, and the larger service doors on Pelham Street. The interior retains its pressed tin ceilings that were installed by Wambolt, and are in excellent condition.

The building derives its unusual shape from the acute angle at the lot’s west end where Pelham and Lincoln Street meet. The builder made use of this angle and the steep slope to put in a full blind bay at this end of the building, where Wambolt’s business sign was originally placed. This intersection is a major crossroads in Lunenburg, and 112-118 Lincoln Street acts as an introduction to the Lincoln and Pelham Streets commercial district.

About Lunenburg…


Lunenburg, NS, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, National Historic District, winner of the Communities in Bloom most beautiful small town in Canada, Prettiest Painted Places in Canada, Port City of the Year and Society of American Travel Writers’ awards. Picturesque Lunenburg lies nestled along the scenic shores of southern Nova Scotia one hour from Halifax and the international airport. Experience our way of life and work amidst historic architecture, attractions and amenities.

Lunenburg is the best surviving example of a planned British colonial settlement in North America. Established in 1753, it has retained its original layout and overall appearance, based on a rectangular grid pattern drawn up in the home country. The inhabitants have managed to safeguard the city's identity throughout the centuries by preserving the wooden architecture of the houses, some of which date from the 18th century.


Lunenburg is truly a walking town, with everything centrally located and just a short distance from one another. Stroll past the colourful heritage properties (in case you’re wondering, Nova Scotia’s fishing towns often painted their homes bright colours so as to be easily seen from the water), visit the many gift and artisan shops scattered throughout the town or enjoy an ice cream along its boardwalk. If the steep hills seem intimidating, you can take a horse and carriage ride with a driver who will gladly point out all of Lunenburg’s famous sites.

Lunenburg is also a haven for many artists who find inspiration in its surrounding beauty. Throughout the summer, the town hosts art festivals that showcase local artists’ range of media and subjects. July includes the Lunenburg Street Festival and Art Walk and the Nova Scotia Folk Art Festival, while the Lunenburg Folk Harbour Festival takes place in August, featuring traditional and contemporary folk music from around the province and region.
