The childhood home of William Maxwell Aitken – better known as Lord Beaverbrook. Enter the beautiful 1877 Victorian style house and take pleasure in viewing the carefully restored architecture. Throughout your visit, you will learn more about the man who was once described as “an idle boy” and was credited with the phrase “Pots and Pans for Britain’s Planes.” Max was always a force to be dealt with.

Throughout summer months, visitors can enjoy an “Encounter with Lord Beaverbrook”.  Guests will have the opportunity to hear from him what his job description was during WWII and learn what major part he played in the Battle of Britain. Following your encounter, join Lord Beaverbrook for tea and casual conversation.  Reservations are required. Call 506-622-5572 to book, or for more information.

Regular tours give you the history of the House, as well as how this house also served as the Old Manse Library.  Hear about the first Librarian in the area. She was ahead of her times.
