Keillor House Museum

Date: Sat, June 15, 2013 - 1:30 pm - by: Keillor House Museum

This majestic stone structure, built by Yorkshireman John Keillor in 1813, is a living museum with nine original fireplaces, Victorian furniture, house-hold artefacts, and a working bake oven. Costumed staff demonstrate quilting, rug hooking, and baking. Exhibits in the Coach House include a unique penitentiary collection.  

The Keillor House Museum and Coach House are a stately testement to the joys, hardships and toil of the families who built the historic community of Dorchester, NB. Of early Regency architecture, this majestic stone structure was built in 1813 by Yorkshire stone mason John Keillor. Its nine original fireplaces are surrounded by the warmth and charm of period furniture. While there, be sure to climb the rough-hewn spiral staircase, which coils its way around a ships' mast to the farm boy's attic bedroom. The period costumes and magnificent artefacts add to the charm. Be sure to also see the Coach House and its antique carriages and farm tools, not to mention the very unique Penitentiary Collection.

Closed Mondays. Open Tuesday - Saturday 10 am - 5 pm and Sunday 12 pm to 5pm.
