West Shore Surf Shoppe is settled into a Beautiful Timeless Building built in the 1880's. West Shore owners Ashley Adams and Tonya Schmalz heavily renovated and refurbished the interior of this building back to its original triple brick walls, hardwood floors, high ceilings and heavy timber beams bringing the character of how this building originally was back to life. From the moment you enter our doors and take stroll through the shop you'll be as amazed as we were when we found that we could expose the natural beauty of this building and work with these materials to set the natural setting of what our store front shop is today. Stop by and enjoy your shopping experience of a fully independently owned, mom and pop styled brick and mortor shop that puts it's customer's experience above everything else.
Most of the downtown stores were built in Renaissance Revival style in the 1880's, replacing the wooden buildings of the town's first merchants. There are also many Second Empire Style structures, a favourite style of A.J. Evans, a local architect.
Although most storefronts have been altered, the upper floors still show the architectural elements of 1870-1900, despite some missing cornices. Note the many original inset doorways and external support columns.
The beautiful stonework was originally ballast in sailing ships (came here from the Kingston area) and note the wooden parapets, unlike those of metal on the rest of the street.
