Significance: The Canary-Naudine Store, located in Port Penn in St. Georges Hundred, stands as an important example of a circa 1785 combination dwelling and store erected in a small maritime trading community on the Delaware River. The structure is also significant for a number of construction details describing low-cost vernacular framing traditions.
