A Seafaring Maiden is located in Granville Ferry, Nova Scotia on Granville Road, considered to be the oldest road in the country. Across the Annapolis River from the town of Annapolis Royal, the village of Granville Ferry takes its name from the larger township of Granville, created in 1759 to settle New England Planters. The village maintains many of its historic homes, built by the sea captains, ship builders, and merchants of the 19th and early 20th centuries, A Seafaring Maiden being an excellent example.
