Carmichael-Stewart House Museum (click here for additional photos)
Situated on a tree-lined street in the heart of New Glasgow, this is one of Pictou County's most historic structures. This Victorian home was built in 1880 by Senator James W. Carmichael, who was a prominent citizen and heir to a prosperous shipbuilding company. Senator Carmichael gave the home to his son and daughter-in-law as a wedding gift. The house, which is adorned with original hardwood floors and beautiful stained glass windows, houses an extensive photo collection, Trenton Glassware, an amazing clothing collection and many unique Pictou County treasures.
Open June-September. Admission by donation.
