Dr. Brad Atkinson, from New Brunswick, and his wife Meryl, from Wales, purchased the property from the Henley family in 2008, and with love and respect, fully renovated the home to The Henley House Pub and Restaurant. The halls of The Henley House are lined with authentic family photos, favourites of Mrs. Henley’s, and many artifacts came from the original “R.B’s General Store” and “The East Inn”.
