Experience Hands-on Heritage!
At Ross Farm Museum step back in time and experience life as it once was in rural Nova Scotia. Using heritage skills, animals and tools we continue to operate the farm of Captain William Ross who settled in New Ross in 1816 with his family, and 172 disbanded soldiers. Our knowledgeable interpreters can be seen performing the same daily tasks that were once a way of life for many folks in rural Nova Scotia. On any given day you can witness farmers working in the fields with oxen, the blacksmith hammering on glowing hot steel and the ladies in Rosebank Cottage preparing delicious biscuits, just to name a few. Visit us today and immerse yourself into the history of rural Nova Scotia! Learn More...
We don’t tap a lot of trees at Ross Farm Museum, but we still have fun with maple syrup. Sample maple syrup and pancakes in Rosebank Cottage, learn about the process of tapping trees, collecting sap and boiling the sap down over an outdoor fire. Enjoy a sweet day at the museum. Read more...
