Near tennis court and historic building & lot with provincial designation

Fantastic info provided by this seller, makes this central property well worth a look:

“This part of the Region of Queens Municipality provides great beauty; miles of beaches awaits your arrival, four seasons (with the mildest of Maritime winters) amid recreational amenities to suit everyone. Liverpool is a mere hour and a half from Halifax and can be reached by traveling the main highway #103, or for a much more leisurely drive along the coastline on the #3 highway, best known as the Lighthouse Route. It’s Regional Hospital has numerous doctors on staff, several dentists are in the town and there is an optometrist’s office. Some consider Liverpool to be the undiscovered gem of the South Shore and noted to be one of Canada‘s best kept secrets.

Maritime history is rich here in Liverpool and one cannot help but be taken back in time as one walks along Main Street, Market Street and Church Street.   Located on Church Street the Rossignol Cultural Centre combines 12 surprising and unusual museums in one. The Guide Sports, Hunting, Fishing and Mi’Kmaq Museum features images and artifacts of early guiding and native life. There are folk art, outhouse and apothecary museums and a re-created English Tea Room. The Wildlife Museum has an 18 foot giraffe, musk ox, polar bear, wolf, caribou and other animals from North America and Africa. Outside there are teepees, an early settler’s cabin, a yurt, a blockhouse and a re-creation of Maud Lewis’ tiny house.  The Liverpool Court House, a landmark Greek Revival temple style building, is also located on Church Street in the centre of Liverpool, NS. ”

South Shore Parades and Festivals

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

Recently I went to a “Newcomers” evening in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.  Although living here now well over a decade, and being a first generation Canadian, I’m forever a Come From Away… but that’s OK, as I arrived on the South Shore by choice and not just birth luck!  Check out this professional video of the original landowners before me

So as I was saying, this is my chosen Homeland.  Such is also the case of the talented videographers above, who I met that evening in Liverpool.  My children have the advantage of already being born here.  However, learning how to be a Maritimer is still required!

Attending community events, working in service clubs, and volunteering to keep this rural place special are things that seem worth passing on to our youth.

…My daughter was the youngest “puller” at the local Exhibition, and didn’t weigh-in enough for the final team. ( The perseverance and patience of trying, was a success regardless of the winning or losing).  This is the culture of the South Shore and one worth moving here for.

“Come for the Experience,  Stay for the People”

Ocean-centric activities aren’t the only aspect to Lunenburg/ Queens that deserves mentioning.  Farms that feed our future and lakes that supply our fresh water are amazing assets.  Small businesses have become large over time.

In addition to our resources is the Lifestyle, and one of the most interesting indicators for measuring the South Shore:  how is the level of Humour?  Folks here love a turn of phrase and jovial fun.  Where else would you see a quilt cover for a car body  to advertise a festival

Pine View Farms had to park last year’s car float with petunias growing out of its body.  This year another entry had  a tanker truck painted pink!

Yes, we’re an ‘understated’ parade of neighbours and lots of firetrucks — not just pom poms and loud music floats.   And then there’s the final parade entry (and no, it’s not Santa).
