The Steeves House Museum, historic birthplace of the Honourable William Henry Steeves, is a charming Colonial mansion comprised of thirteen rooms. The original section of the house was finished in 1812 and William Henry Steeves was born here in 1814 as the oldest of eleven children. He became a Father of Confederation and later, a Senator. The larger portion of the house was added circa 1840 reflecting the expanding growth and prosperity of the economy in the village. The museum is now comprised of 6000 sq. ft. of antique furnished, period rooms accessible to the public.

 

We welcome you to enjoy costumed, guided tours of the property, as well as access to local genealogy records on Albert County surnames via our database of over 125,000 names. Spacious grounds with lush gardens, trees and outdoor seating offer a scenic stop for photos.
