|Description & Services|
|Description of service(s)||The Ross Memorial Museum is housed in a red brick Georgian mansion built in 1824, one of St. Andrews' many historic and architecturally significant buildings. Once the residence of Loyalist Harris Hatch, the Ross Memorial Museum is now furnished with the stunning furniture and decorative arts collection of Henry Phipps Ross and Sarah Juliette Ross.
An American couple, the Rosses came to St. Andrews for a picnic early in 1902, fell in love with the area, bought an estate on the edge of town and summered here for the next forty years! Their collection was amassed during those years and features the fine work of 19th century New Brunswick cabinetmakers, American and Canadian artists, oriental carpets and objets d'art from their world travels.
The Rosses later purchased Chestnut Hall to become a museum of their collection -- and a lasting legacy of their affection for St. Andrews.
Whether you come for 15 minutes or an hour, we think you'll agree the Ross Memorial Museum is just the right size to fit into your day of sight-seeing in this picturesque seaside town.
