A home in Avondale, Nova Scotia — believed to be one of the oldest in the province — is up for sale.
Owner Sherman Hines has traced the construction back to 1699, built by the French as a mission and a fortification against the English after searching old maps and books.
"As far as I can find in any research I have done, it is the oldest building east of Quebec City," he said.
Hines, a photographer, bought the house in 1982 for $15,000 and a restoration was 30 years in the making.
