“Lovely leaning experince.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Was lovely to see the oldest house in Sydney and learn about it's history as well as to get a glimpse into how life used to be. For very little, you get to walk into the past and visit a while. Worth a stop by.

“A few dollars for a few minutes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

While friendly, the staff left us on our own for the most part to look through the house. Would have liked a little more, though they were more than willing to answer any questions we had about the historical house and the family that had lived there.

“A little slice of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

An intimate historical immersion in the context of a local family. The docents provided a good tour of the house with information on daily activities. The Cossit House in the morning and Fortress Louisbourg in the afternoon made for an interesting day. Both were highly authentic.
