This is a wonderful little museum about the Quaker times in Dartmouth. Lots of period furniture, a garden typical of a house garden and the friendliest hosts anywhere. Take the tour. It's short and you will learn a lot.

The story of the Quakers is very interesting the staff are very good at explaining how and why these folks came to Dartmouth.This house is like a maze inside there are many bedrooms and very small stairs.They also have a garden out back where they grow the herbs etc.This is a great place to visit if your interested in history.

And I'm a Quaker!! Great tour guides describe the Society of Friends, the house (and it's quirks), the history of the Quakers in Dartmouth and how they came to be there (and left), and the whaling industry in Nova Scotia. Admission charged (cheap, about $2)

This is supposedly the oldest house in Dartmouth having been built some time during the 1700s. It is interesting to see how people lived during that era. The young girl who gave us the tour was dressed in the clothing of that period and was very knowledgable about Quakers and their history. For $2 a person, this is a good way to spend half an hour or so if you're ever in Dartmouth.
