Notes

  • From http://www.historicplaces.ca

    The Kinsman-Salsman House is valued because this Classic Revival style house, dating from the first quarter of the nineteenth century, is among the oldest remaining homes of the migration of second and third generation New England Planters into western Cornwallis Township lands in Nova Scotia.

    Each original Planter grantee received a total of six hundred and sixty-six acres, of which he was immediately given his town and farm lots surrounding the marshlands of the rivers draining into the Bay of Minas. The remainder was divided into two and three hundred acre lots to be paid off as desired in the western and northern lands of the township. It became the practice for the original grantees to pass on their lots to their sons and grandsons as part of their larger inheritance.

    In the case of the present Kinsman-Salsman property, it was almost certainly part of the three hundred acre lot laid off to Benjamin Kinsman, an original grantee, who either sold or gave this part to his son, Robert. Robert, upon his death, left it to his son Theodorus. Theodorus, who had been living with his parents, but married in 1818, probably settled on his inherited lands and erected what appears to be the Kinsman-Salsman House. In 1834, however, it was extensively remodelled to take the form it has today.
