THIS UNIT IS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE!
The L.E.Wambolt Building is a 1907 Registered Historic property by the
Canadian government (See Historic picture from 1909 with the original tin smith owner and staff.)
The building is one of the largest commercial structures in “downtown” Lunenburg.
This first-floor unit consists of 1,950 square feet with original high tin
ceilings and hardwood floors. This space is located at the actual Entrance to
the Lunenburg Historic District.
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 street-scape. 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 dry cleaner. 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 in 1907, 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. This can be seen from the aerial
picture. 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.
