Visit one of the oldest wooden structures in Canada, a National Historic site within a National Historic District.  Built in c.1708-1710, the Sinclair Inn is perhaps the only remaining pre-expulsion Acadian structure in Annapolis Royal.  A striking example of a combined restoration project and educational resource, the building provides a fascinating glimpse into its construction system, materials and evolution through the innovative use of glass panels.

Discover the Painted Room – In the 1960s, water damage from a failed roof revealed, in an upstairs room, walls covered with painted images dating to the 1840s. In the summer of 2016, a major effort by the Annapolis Heritage Society led to the expert removal of the wallpaper, revealing the stunning images for the first time in more than 125 years. Enjoy these captivating murals and the Painted Room Documentary.
