Complementing the ceilings are three beautifully embossed tin ceilings, one carefully restored and two others added for consistency.
The verandas and upper outdoor balcony connect this amazing home with the views of the rising Fundy tides connected to the Annapolis Basin below and the bustling fishing fleet that founded the Digby community.
