  • This was a great place to stop. They offer a guided tour a couple times per day. Our tour guide Dan was great. He went over the history of Rebecca Nurse and the trials.

  • I had the pleasure of viewing Rebecca nurse's homestead 3 years ago. It's such a peaceful place to visit. The property is beautiful. I love how the property is used to display history of the past. There are all sorts of events and gathers that take place here. Definitely worth a trip to see any time of the year
