Scott Manor House officially opens for the summer on July 1st, and you are invited to join us in celebrating! From 10am until 4pm daily, 12 to 8pm on Wednesdays, our guides will be available to share the rich history of Bedford’s oldest home. Our tearoom also officially opens for the summer from 2 to 4pm Monday through Saturday, serving tea, oatcakes, ice cream and fresh berries until the end of August.

Canada Day is a time to experience the culture that is so vibrant in Bedford. The Scott Manor House is pleased to be offering a guided walk of the War Dept. Property Monuments with John MacDonald starting at 1pm. John has dedicated many hours to researching property ownership in Bedford all the way back to the 18th century. Guests will learn interesting history about land surveying monuments in the area. At 2pm Keith Filmore will be playing traditional banjo tunes on the grounds, please bring a lawn chair.

July 1st will also kick off the first day of “The Halifax Series”, an art show and sale by local painter Graham ‘Buz’ Baker. Buz is well-known for his nautical motif paintings featuring the fishing vessels and villages of Canada’s East Coast. If you are interested in learning more about the artist, Buz will be holding a launch of his autobiography, Fifty Years Before the Easel, at the Manor House on July 1st from 2 to 4pm.
