DGJ_4954 - Apples anyone

PLEASE, no multi invitations (none is better) in your comments. Thanks.


Prescott House Museum at Starr's Point, near Wolfville. Here, horticulturalist Charles Ramage Prescott cultivated Nova Scotia's apple industry from 1811 to 1859. One hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Ramage Prescott introduced to Nova Scotia some of the apple varieties that we still eat today: the Ribston, Northern Spy, Baldwin, and Gravenstein.

This is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Nova Scotia.
