This past summer we visited Ross Farm Museum at New Ross. What an incredible treasure this is. We spent the afternoon immersed in early Nova Scotia country life.
We sampled tasty treats freshly baked in the wood stove of the farm house; took a wagon ride to visit the barrel maker, chatted with the carpenter as he patiently carved one of the creations which can be purchased in the gift shop; walked through the garden full with a fine harvest of fresh vegetables; and observed as the farm workers unloaded oxen drawn wagons, weaved corn dollies, spun wool, and cared for the sheep and pigs.
I recall the afternoon clearly and gained a deeper understanding about life in this province during the early 1800's. The museum has some special offerings during the Christmas season which can be found on their website. Ross Farm Museum I am hoping to "experience Christmas in the county" at this wonderful living historic site.
