Hiscock House Provincial Historic Site
Emma Hiscock was left pregnant and with five mouths to feed when her husband drowned in 1893. Her house, restored to 1910, captures the genteel life she managed to maintain through her resourcefulness and entrepreneurship. She ran a post office and shop and even rented out her front room to the Royal Bank. Her life and her children's lives offer a glimpse at the refined lifestyle that made Trinity no ordinary "outport": shopping trips to New York, private schools, and a town cricket team.
