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.
