Worthwhile visit to this historical property on the waterfront. Home is furnished in period pieces and is worth the short visit. Easy to access from downtown so no worries about parking (there is however parking across the street). This is also a good base from which to undertake the 1.5 km walk of the Victoria Park Boardwalk (on the Boardwalk, just past the the cannons, is a good place to stop for a light lunch or ice cream)

The tour was very worthwhile. The house has amazing crown moldings and the finishes are very decorative. The tour guide was very informative and allowed us to take our time.
