The Wolfville Historical Society’s beautiful early 19th century home, Randall House Museum, holds afternoon teas every Saturday from 2pm to 5pm! Come to 259 Main Street to enjoy elegant British afternoon tea in an authentic dining room circa 1809. Drink from our matching tea sets, and delight in the period-appropriate finger sandwiches and baked goods. Entrance is only $5, and comes with a complementary tour of the museum.
During past summers we have had: a Teddy Bear picnic, an ice cream social, and the always popular Patriquin Regatta where children build and sail model boats on the old Duck Pond in Willow Park. Charles Patriquin lived in the Randall House with his family, and took a special interest in children and the Duck Pond, which he helped to establish.
During our open season, June to September , there are many things to see at Randall House. Our exhibit room always has an exhibit featured, and the way the rooms of the house are interpreted often changes from year to year. There are special events scheduled to complement the exhibits, so watch our website, Folow our facebook page or in season give the museum a call at 902-542-9775 to find out what’s going on.
When the Randall House Museum is closed for the season the Wolfville Historical Society presents a series of talks on historical subjects. For the next meeting watch for a notice on our website homepage or on Facebook. The Society also produces a Newsletter quarterly which is sent to members.
We encourage group visits from students, seniors, crafters, bus tours, and youth groups etc. but we ask that you book your time ahead. If your group would like to visit please call or email the museum so we can tailor your tour to your special interests.
