The beautiful architecture of the Locke Homestead in the town of Lockeport, Nova Scotia, towers over the manicured landscape where a display of colorful lawn furniture sits. Constructed in 1876 for Captain Henry Locke, it was later purchased in 1892 by a cousin named Churchill Locke and the house is now owned by a direct descendant of this man.
This house is done in a Victorian design and is the Second Empire style with its mansard roof and 3 bay evenly proportioned facade. The Locke Homestead looks out over the beauty of Lockeport Harbour where the main industry in the town is fishing.
