Located in Parrsboro, at Partridge Island on the shore of the Minas Basin is a late 18th century structure known as the Ottawa House. Come "Meet the Owners", from the past to the present day. The name Ottawa House came from the period of time when The Honourable Sir Charles Tupper owned it as his summer home. The museum houses artefacts on early shipbuilding, lumber and furnished period rooms, as well as an archives/genealogy room. Enjoy the sea breezes from the veranda and watch for ghosts from the past.
