Tuesday through Friday

AIRO (Annapolis Investments in Rural Opportunity) is an innovative micro-lender that has taken shape in the award-winning historic Annapolis Royal Train Station, a federally designated heritage building. AIRO has helped new businesses to flourish and existing businesses to expand which has, in turn, encouraged other entrepreneurs to seek out this area…some of whom have created successful modern businesses in beautiful heritage buildings, giving the buildings and our community a new lease on life! AIRO is helping Annapolis Royal — and all of Annapolis County — to become THE place to live, work, play, and thrive in Nova Scotia!

The Annapolis Royal Train Station is surrounded by lovely grounds and situated right next to the Harvest Moon Trail – a 110 km multi-use trail that connects two of the most significant Acadian sites in Nova Scotia, Annapolis Royal and Grande Pre.

Although the station is not open to the public, it boasts handsome interpretive panels located on its outer walls, sharing the story of the building and its loving restoration with anyone who passes by.

Faits amusants

Why build a “fancy” train station in rural Annapolis Royal? It was to impress and encourage the tourists getting off the Dominion Atlantic Railway (DAR) trains and ferries — coming to visit old Fort Anne, or stay the summer at Milford House or fish and canoe at Kejimkujik. The new station was, in other words, part of the DAR’s marketing plan, and it was built to be beautiful.
