Quinn House
MacIntosh Road

The original part of the house was built in 1850, with an addition made in 1900. A porch was added in 1960. The current owner is the fifth generation of the family to live in this house. The Quinn family has been farming in the area for the entire time. Their strawberries and their U-Pick are well known all over Cape Breton Island. There is an original barn and well on the property which remain as reminders of the "way it used to be".

Architectural Comment

Resembling the typical Cape Breton farm house, this structure has Victorian and Neoclassical designs. This two-storey house contains timber-framed ceilings.
