North Hills Museum
North Hills Museum is located in Granville Ferry, NS, on the shores of the historic Annapolis Basin. The museum is housed in a 200-year-old "salt box" house originally known as Rumsey Farm. The farmhouse was purchased in 1964 by Robert Patterson, a wealthy collector of 18th- and 19th-century furniture, porcelain, glass and paintings. Patterson willed his house and collection of antiques to the Nova Scotia government to be maintained as a historic house museum in 1974. The museum is open to the public from early June to mid-October.
