Prescott House Museum & Garden



Prescott House Museum

Come calling at “Acacia Grove”, an elegant Georgian house in the picturesque Annapolis Valley. Here, horticulturalist Charles Prescott cultivated Nova Scotia’s apple industry from 1811 to 1859.

Discover how his great grand daughter, Mary Allison Prescott, rescued the derelict building in the 1930s to recreate a gracious home. See family portraits, antique furnishings and Miss Prescott’s collections of hand-stitched samplers and tribal Oriental carpets. Delight in the garden and lush countryside surrounding this special place.


Due to the extensive cleanup from Hurricane Fiona and to ensure the safety of our staff and visitors, Prescott House Museum is closed for the season. We look forward to seeing you in the spring 2023.

Our site trails and grounds will reopen once treefall and other debris has been cleared. Please check our website and social media for updates.
