One of the oldest buildings in Dartmouth, Quaker House (c. 1785) is associated with the Nantucket Quaker Whalers who were in the city from 1785-1792. Quaker House has been restored and furnished to reflect this period. Visitors will learn the history of Nova Scotia’s Quaker settlers when visiting this interpreted historic house. Guided tours are available during the summer months from costumed heritage interpreters. Enjoy a stroll through our fully researched and interpreted heritage garden which is available on the museum grounds. Quaker House is operated by the Dartmouth Heritage Museum.

One of Nova Scotia’s 10 living history sites.
