Family visiting Ross Farm Museum

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 was 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 ScotiaLearn More...

This weekend our interpreters will be demonstrating the traditional art of snowshoe making. We have snowshoes available for you to experience snowshoeing first hand. Read more...
