Who We Are

Built in the 1760s, the exterior of this small farmhouse looks like a typical country home, but inside it boasts a collection of fine art and furnishings that create an air of Georgian elegance.

In 1964, Robert Patterson bought North Hills and made it a showplace for his impressive collection of antiques, including English porcelain and oak, mahogany and walnut furniture.

Through his efforts to establish a local restoration society, Patterson became a popular and valued member of the community and was an early member of the Nova Scotia Heritage Trust.

Visit North Hills Museum and be charmed by the history and culture found in this unique home, located in the heart of one of North America's most historic regions.
