Riverfront Building for Sale in Bear River – Calling all Offers

Changing hands after 40 years.

‘The Green Lantern’ building rests on the edge of the tidal Bear River. Situated between the village gas station and the post office, this commercial building awaits your dream.

Low Tide

Affectionately called “The Green Lantern” from her movie viewing days in the 1920s to 1940s, this one time warehouse has been a theatre, a museum, and a gathering place in the heart of Bear River. She is a local landmark (unprotected) and the last of its kind in Digby county.

She’s 139 years old, a little rough around the edges and needs a special person with vision to transform her into a viable business that will benefit the community.

The fully gutted building is 25 x 61 feet with a loft and faces the river. She has about 10 feet of riverfront. The remaining water frontage is grassland owned by Canada Post. There is access to Community water and municipal sewer hookups.

The Bear River Board of Trade is the current owner. Commercial waterfront property is scarce in Bear River and we are looking for a buyer to carry on the tradition of providing service(s) and/or business(es) for our village of 800. Purchase proposals should include a business plan, economic and/or cultural benefits to the area.
The building is being sold ‘As Is, Where Is’.

All proposals/offers are to be received by May 15, 2021.
Closing date will be negotiated with the buyer.

Please mail your proposal to: The Bear River Board of Trade c/o Brian Hircock, Treasurer Box 152 Bear River N.S. B0S 1B0

Or, email proposal and questions to: bearrivernsbot@gmail.com
