One of the blocks in the wall of the cottage is not local stone. Like many smaller chips, it was brought in from a quarry at Purcell's Cove to be used as blocks for the Shubenacadie Canal. This one even has a drill mark to allow a stonemason to split it with a wedge and feathers. Perhaps it split wrong, because it was used here instead of on the canal itself.
