Woodstock in Carleton County, New Brunswick — The Atlantic Provinces (North America)
Bailey House / Maison Bailey
130 Chapel Street / 130, rue Chapel
Believed to have been built in the 1860’s for the Hon. Charles Connell, this Gothic Revival house was leased to Charles Bailey, a shoemaker and carpenter from the 1870’s through to his death in 1902. Bailey may have been associated with the Bailey brothers Boot and Shoe Store, which stood on Main Street near the Town Square until it was destroyed in the great fire of 1877.
In December of 1975 a major fire destroyed most of the interior of the house and was called "a total loss". Luckily the exterior, including the elaborate bargeboards and finials was spared. The MacMillan family had the interior totally rebuilt in 1976.
