Museum in the Streets
If you visit Belfast, you might want to print out the Museum in the Streets map on the attached website or check with the Belfast Historical Society at 10 Market Street to see if they have a printed guide. The signs are in both English and French.
There are 30 panels with old photos and text describing significant buildings, people and historic events. We stopped by a few of the sights but didn't have time to do the whole tour.

Jeweled Turret Inn
Even if you are not planning on staying in Belfast, be sure to go by the Jeweled Turret Inn, a beautiful Victorian home built in 1898 for a local attorney, James S. Harriman. The inn is named for the jewel like stained glass in one of the turrets.
The wooden carvings outside this shop appear to be recent creations mirroring the barnacle encrusted ones at the harbor shore. Be sure to search out both
