W. ALBERT SMITH HOUSE
c.1830

This large two-storey white clapboard house, built c.1830 by George L. Kinnear, is a good example of the Greek Revival style of architecture. The rear wing may have been built earlier as it resembles 1-1/2 storey houses that were built in this area circa 1795.

The house is said to have been a stopping place for the stagecoach as it made its way to Nova Scotia on the Old Coach Road through Middle Sackville. William Kinnear, who inherited the property from his father, had a blacksmith shop here, and later his son Boyd carried on farming. The property was sold to prominent farmer William Albert Smith in 1884.
