We stumbled upon this spot while wandering around St. Andrews and we were pleasantly surprised. We happily took a free tour and we were then treated to afternoon tea, complete with delicious raspberry trifle! Definitely worth stopping. Don't forget to bring some small bills for a donation :-).

the young lady who showed us around was in period dress and was very friendly and knowledgeable. She bought the history of this fascinating house to life, which gave us a good idea as to how the initial inhabitants lived in the early 19th century. The home gingersnaps made to the original recipe were delicious - make sure you ask... More

A small historic house with interesting history of Saint Andrews. Worth visiting if you're in town. Budget 30-40 minutes.

I love these old homes, where it feels like you're back in time. The lady who gave us the tour was very thorough and pleasant. She really put her heart into it and made us feel like we knew the Andrews family. There is even a signature of Louise Andrews (the daughter of Sheriff Andrews), scratched into the glass of... More

An interesting look at the family life and home of Elisha Shelton Andrews, son of a Loyalist immigrant and sheriff during the early 1800’s. Furnishings are not original to the house but are of the period. The downstairs kitchen is the most interesting part of the house and if you are there in the afternoon you can sit for tea... More

Enjoyed a visit to this museum while in the area on a day trip with my family. The young lady who gave us a guided tour was full of information about the history of the area and of the building itself.

I arrived 10 minutes before closing on a beautiful Saturday and one staff member took the time to show me around and explain the museum. I learned about the Andrews family and their link to the community. I got ideas of other things to do in town as well as directions to the local librAry. At the end I was... More

An enjoyable tour of a period house decorated in the style that would have been familiar to Sheriff Andrews, an early occupant after whom the house is named. Lots of information was given by the guide, including stories of the people who lived in the house (and their friends) and the history of some of the furniture, e.g the tallboy... More
