About the Author:

David Orkin is a freelance travel writer. Having recently bought a cottage in Nova Scotia, he now spends several months there each year.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

It is said that in the 1790s, Prince Edward, Duke of Kent (and father of QueenVictoria), was surprised embracing an attractive serving girl at the c1708 de Gannes-Cosby House at 477 George Street, now a private residence and the oldest documented wooden structure in Nova Scotia. Incidentally, the house is said to be haunted, but only by a quiet, well-mannered old lady who never bothers anyone.

During the same visit the duke attended a ball held at what later became known as the Bailey House. In the 1830s, the house’s owner, ‘Marm’ Bailey, was renowned for her ‘moose muffle soup’ (the muffle is the nose and the pendulous, overhangingupper lip of the moose). The Bailey House is now an elegant B&B (see above). Moose muffle soup is not on the breakfast menu.
