Collins Heritage District


Many prominent buildings of Yarmouth’s Age of Sail have survived to the 21st century, giving us a glimpse into the live and architectural designs of the 1800s. These houses are strong reminders of the town's prosperous past, especially in the Collins Street area, where many captains of industry and sailing ships made their homes.
