Welcome to Reeves Hall Art & Antiques
After the official opening Friday, May 12, 2017, the Bath area saw a number of historic events in this Canada's 150th year, including the Tall Ships in the harbour. An unseasonally wet spring and summer led to lower than expected tourists. The shop remains open until Thanksgiving weekend, October 7 - 9th with a reduction in prices of 10 - 25% and all taxes included.
Reeves Hall at 452 Main Street, Bath - what better way to experience our history than to travel the Loyalist Parkway from Trenton through Kingston, taking the Glenora Ferry to shops in the village here. Reeves Hall Art & Antiques is chock-a-block with fine Canadian and European pieces. Featured artist is Sherry Pringle of Napanee with a variety of 7 striking canvases depicting the War of 1812 and Loyalist life. You'll also find Heronwater Antiques and Heritage Point Antiques & Gifts here in Bath, the latter closing its doors for good at the end of August.
Reeves Hall Art & Antiques is found in the quaint village of Bath, and is known to have originated as a one-storey Regency Cottage around 1820. By 1850 it was owned by the Reeves brothers, both Presbyterian ministers and also cobblers. I now say these two saved souls and soles. It is located on the Loyalist Parkway that stretches from Kingston to Adolphustown on Highway 33 - the first road in the province. It is now a major tourist route joining Eastern Ontario to Prince Edward County. The east wing of Reeves Hall, or annex, was built as a waiting room and surgery for Dr. H C Burleigh who practiced here for many years. Dr. Burleigh was also an historian, author and antique collector, so it is fitting then that a new art and antique business emerges in his memory. Dr. Burleigh wrote books including: Forgotten Leaves of Local History: Kingston, 1973, The Romance of Fort Frontenac, 1979, Tales of Amherst Island, 1980.
Reeves Hall Art & Antiques utilizes both the annex and east living room as shop space to showcase a fine collection of both Canadian and European art and antiques. I have been a collector for decades and am also selling the remainder of my books, Manly E. MacDonald, (1889-1971) - Interpreter of Old Ontario, MacDonald's paintings, and cards. Shops hours are daily from 11:00 to 5: 00 p.m.; closed Tuesday and Wednesday, or if raining. This website also encourages antique and art collectors to peruse the wares available now by appointment or chance in contacting me through this site or at 613-352-5193. Prices now reduced 10 - 25% with all taxes included.
