The house itself is worth the stop. The history and the story of Charles and Mable are very interesting. The displays of Charlie's work are not up to what I expected however.

A very interesting place with an awesome person dedicated to the arts thru his sculptures and paintings. I am going back to see more of the houses he built in the valley.

What an amazing person he was. An industrialist who was concerned about the welfare of his workers, and a person with a very playful sense, as well as a talented painter. If you can, go and see his fairy cottages at Huntington Beach- they are marvelous.

Sadly the home itself was closed for visiting and there was no information on their hours of service. Nonetheless the grounds were accessible and we were able to take a peek at the wonderful concrete sculptures that were lovingly created by the artist. One could appreciate the design and the hard work that went into his art work and unique home. Apparently the interior of the home has a lot of concrete finishes as well and is worth a visit, so we'll simply have to return. Well worth the quick stop. www.concretehouse.ca

While visiting the Annapolis Valley region of Nova Scotia on our way to Hall's Harbour for a delicious lobster lunch by the water, we discovered the home of Charles MacDonald. His history is a fascinating one of a self-made man who not only created a prosperous concrete business but shared it with the people who worked with him. During the Great Depression of the 1930's he kept his employees working on the construction of a group of charming free-form concrete cottages near Hall's Harbour. Four of the cottages exist to this day and should be visited after your lobster lunch.
