The Ottawa House by the Sea Museum is 3 km from Parrsboro at Partridge Island. The site overlooks the Minas Basin and former ferry route to Annapolis Valley Regions. Ottawa House built in the late 1760's served primarily as an inn but is best known as the summer home of the Rt. Hon. Sir Charles Tupper. He was a Premier of Nova Scotia, Father of Confederation and sixth Prime minister of Canada. The Museum is now undergoing major restorative and interpretive improvements. Exhibits focus on the storyline of the building and the site, as the witness to the waves of human occupation, industry and historical events of the early colony and nation.
