Evergreen House in Dartmouth is a restored Victorian home built in 1867 for Judge Alexander James, offering a beautiful panoramic view of Halifax Harbour and a fine example of a mid-Victorian gentleman’s residence. The house was also the former home of Dr Helen Creighton, Nova Scotian author and folklorist – and now home to the Dartmouth Heritage Museum. Evergreen House is furnished with period antiques and steeped in history, with rotating exhibits from the museum’s collection in the upper galleries and access to the beautiful Victorian main level. Children can enjoy our Victorian dress-up trunk and “find the artifact” game! The Museum offers year-round group tours, gift shop, and parking. Afternoon teas are held in Helen's sunroom on Thursdays; call for reservations.
