AAA Editor Notes

Mercantile Premises, on West St., overlooks the harbor and is perhaps the oldest wooden structure in the province. It used to serve as a counting house and merchant shop; the office area was built in the 1750s and Benjamin Lester built the shop in 1764. Artifacts from the fishing town are displayed throughout the building. Guided tours are available. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
