Prescott House, Starrs Point, Nova Scotia: R61-2/10-2-1987E-PDF
"The house of the Honorable Charles R. Prescott, a horticulturist who pioneered in the apple industry of Nova Scotia, was built at the start of the 19th century. It is a very fine example of British classical architecture. Along with the usual outbuildings for livestock and equipment on the estate, known as Acacia Grove, there was a greenhouse where fruits, vegetables and flowers were grown in great variety. Shortly after his death in 1859 the house changed hands; it was acquired in 1930 by a great granddaughter who restored it to its original state"--Introduction, p. .
