Situated on one of the oldest streetscapes in Canada, the Bailey House, built in 1770, has a rich and colourful history. It is a fine example of the Georgian Period, with timber-frame construction, many original features, hardware finishings and materials. The Bailey House has been witness to many changes in Annapolis Royal from it's hey day as a shipping and ship building hub to its present day attraction as a tourism and historical centre. The waterfront on lower St. George Street was once filled with shipping, trading, and mercantile activities, and sported a large hotel next door, a blacksmith shop, and several large wharves that served as ship building and shipping facilities. It was once possible to buy passage from these wharves to New Brunswick, Boston, New York and England.
