Discover what life was like in 1780s Nova Scotia
Step Back in Time
Find yourself at home and at work in the store with the Ross's in early Shelburne when you visit the Ross-Thomson House & Store Museum, part of the Nova Scotia Museum family.
They lived here, they traded here; George and Robert Ross opened a store in 1785 adjoining their house where they sold molasses, tobacco, candles and coils of hemp rope.
Sons of a Scottish merchant, they traded local pine, salt codfish and pickled herring for these supplies so valuable to early settlers.
Take a 360 Tour of the museum.
