Heritage Value

Historic Value

308-310 St. George Street is valued for its association with the commercial history of Annapolis Royal. It was constructed in 1922 as part of a rebuilding effort following a 1921 fire that destroyed many commercial buildings on St. George Street. It originally served as two separate spaces and was eventually renovated to serve as once continuous space and has functioned as a pharmacy for many years.

Architectural Value

The architectural value of the building, as recognized in its municipal designation, is its Colonial Revival style with commercial elements. It was originally a one-storey, building with a flat tar and gravel roof with a boom town façade. In the 1990s the gable roof was added. The building has two recessed bay doors facing St. George St. The full window frontage has continuous wood trim with solid wood awning.
