34 Commercial Street

A meticulously cared-for house, 34 Commercial Street is part of the Long Point diaspora in the West End. It was constructed in about 1830 and was the residence of Joseph Emery, in the center of the original settlement out at the point. In the mid-1950s, Jane Harrison had a jewelry store here, selling enamel-on-copper earrings, bracelets, rings, pendants and pins.

One thought on “34 Commercial Street

  1. I restored this beautiful home in 1974. This house was stripped of its dignity and left to realtors and ruiners. I lived in and loved this home, and respected its soul.

    Does it still have one?
