Ross Farm Museum

CA / Nova Scotia
Listed By: Screen Nova Scotia
Location ID: #087-10144627
Located approximately one hour from downtown Halifax is Ross Farm Museum, started in 1969. This is a living, working, farm museum depicting 150 years of agriculture in Nova Scotia. A single-family upland farm on land originally granted to Captain William Ross, Ross Farm Museum is still being farmed with Oxen, the way it was in the late 1800s. In Rosebank Cottage, the original home of the Ross family built in 1817, you may see food being prepared over an open fire, straw hats being woven, wool or flax being spun, butter being churned, or many other skills being demonstrated that were daily chores for our forefathers, but are now almost lost. On site, there is a working blacksmith shop where hardware is produced for the farm. There is also a working stave mill and cooperage producing barrels, the original workshop where products such as butter churns, spoons, buckets and even snowshoes are made.
