|From a caterpillar's point of view.|
From the Museum Brochure:
“Imagine: It’s 1820. Your visiting this grand new country house and its parkland. Your host is Richard John Uniacke, an Irishman. A prominent citizen and Attorney General, he is a man whose fortune was made in Nova Scotia. His estate is created in the English style of his youth.”
The Estate has 7 walking trails that bring you to various interesting sites in the park: Wetlands, Drumlin Field, Uniacke Lake/Lake Martha, and more. The trails lead you along the lake or through beautiful forests with old trees.
Also take a walk inside the house and hear the stories about the ghosts that still live there. Period costumes, furniture and the original kitchen (now functioning as a tearoom) invite to explore the past.
After your explorations take a break under the old trees and have a pick-nick at the tables that are there for visitors. Here you can relax, take out your sketchbook, take some photos, write, or find a new place for the caterpillar that just walked over your keyboard. (smile)
