    From what I understand is the home of the captain who was a pioneer in the exploration of gold in 1800 and something there in Canada. I got there by accident, searching the internet what to do around New westminster. The guides said that all the furniture there is the original and on the internet you can find some stories about Paranormal facts in the House, but honestly I don't see anything out of the ordinary, except when the "receptionist" opened the door and I got scared because of the clothes of the time that they use at home. Admission is free, but they suggest a donation of $2 If you are alone and $5 for a group. Would not recommend for everyone.

    Wonderful place to go back in time to 1865. The two tour ladies are very knowledgeable and had many stories to tell about the family that owned the house. We hope to come back for the Christmas tea.

    Entrance is by donation. The volunteers are very knowledgeable about New Westminster's early history. When you enter this house you are being transferred in time and after 30 minutes inside you can't believe it's 2016 outside.
