A Beautiful Country Estate

Uniacke Estate Museum Park is part of what was the expansive country estate of Attorney-General Richard John Uniacke (1753-1830). Built between 1813 and 1815, the grand country house is one of the finest examples of Georgian architecture in Canada. The estate offers visitors a vivid glimpse of life in the early 1800s among Nova Scotia's gentry.

  • Its just like a piece of time that stood still. Love the grounds.
  • The walking trails are idyllic. There are a number of different lengths and levels of difficulty- some are stroller appropriate and some are definitely challenging hiking. A beautiful setting.
  • Fantastic estate home, well kept to the era. Grounds are lovely coming out onto Uniacke Lake, with many benches along the edge to enjoy the view. Behind it lies a great system of walking trails with several distances to choose from to accommodate various abilities and time allowances.
  • Beautiful! We walked the Drumlin field trail which runs down along the lake then swinging back through a wooded area and out into a beautiful field overlooking the estate. It's easy to imagine being there in the 1850s, very interesting place. This is the perfect place for a picnic!
  • Love this park. So beautiful.
