Experience the History of the Ross Family

Beautiful preserved historic home in the period of this family family residing in St. Andrews. A short walk up King Street from the Town Square & main Wharf.

Our docent was fabulous, and by the time we left the house, we felt we knew Sarah and Henry Ross. The house is beautiful, but the placards, posters, labels, etc., beautifully present pertinent and meaningful information.

This beautiful home is filled with gorgeous antiques, worth the free visit just for that. It also gives you a glimpse at life in St. Andrews in it's heyday.

The museum has an event at Christmas time. Each room is decorated by certain groups, all with a different theme. It is very interesting to see all the different ideas. They also provide live music, and hot cider and cookies. Delicious! Puts you in the Christmas spirit.....

This is a wonderful opportunity to get a glance at the history of St. Andrews. The home is open during the summer and early fall.

To enter the Ross house, you have to ring the door bell and wait for the employee to welcome you, just as one would when visiting friends. After a short introduction about Henry and Sarah Ross and their lifestyle (it took them 3 months to drive across the US on their honeymoon with their maid and butler!), we were let... More

We entered this magnificent home where we were greeted by Karie, hope I spelled your name correctly. She has such compassion for the Ross family, making you feel as if she was related to them. She pours her soul into her work and truly makes you feel so apart of the home. We enjoyed seeing all the fine NB furnishings,... More

They tell a great historic love story in the museum and all the rooms are decorated perfectly with treasures the family collected through the years. One downside is that you cannot enter a lot of rooms because they don't want to tarnish their artifacts.

We stumbled across this house museum while wandering around St. Andrews. It was fascinating. We spent hours in there. I would love to have met the Ross's. They traveled around the world more than once and their photo albums of their world travels in the early 1900's are so intriguing. They laboriously built a road all the way up Chamcook... More

Worth checking out, if only to find out the quirky story of the couple who restored the place. Most of the museum is furnished as a historic house, Victorian-era, but there's also a display about the couple and their international travels. Also changing exhibits in the lower level. A pleasant way to pass an hour or two (especially if it's... More
