This whimsical cottage at Huntington Point, near Hall’s Harbour, Kings County, was built during the Great Depression, and is made of concrete, re-enforced with iron and driftwood. It was the creation of the eccentric Charles Macdonald of Kentville. Macdonald started Kentville Concrete Products prior to WW 1. A staunch socialist, he ran the company as a cooperative. He and his wife camped at Huntington Point, and when the depression hit he built 5 cottages such as this to keep his employees working. This was his own cottage. He rented out the other 4. Ever true to his socialist beliefs, one morning at age 77 he abruptly handed over the keys to his business to his foreman saying: “It’s yours.” He was to enjoy a long and comfortable retirement… much of it spent in this cottage.
