101. Ross Farm Museum: If you want to find the heart of the community of New Ross, you need look no further than the Ross Farm Museum.
The museum is located on some 60 acres of the original 800-acre grant given to Captain William Ross, who was dispatched by the Earl of Dalhousie in 1816, along with 172 disbanded soldiers, to establish a settlement.
Five generations of the Ross family lived and worked on the farm between 1816 and 1970, when the New Ross District Museum Society purchased the property.
In addition to offering a glimpse of what rural life was like over a century ago, every member of the family is sure to enjoy the special theme days, which include sleigh or wagon ride events and historical teas. The museum’s on-site collection of artifacts numbers more than 3,000 total pieces.
From May 1 through October 31, the museum is open every day of the week and, during the off-season, it is open from Wednesday to Sunday.
