Henry Phipps and Sarah Juliette Ross were world travellers, avid collectors of art and antiques and generous philanthropists. In 1938 they purchased beautiful Chestnut Hall (c.1824) specifically as a museum for their collection. Fine furniture by 19th Century New Brunswick cabinet makers, exceptional oriental carpets, paintings and objects d’art all reflect the interests of this fascinating couple. A special summer exhibit changes annually. Admission is by donation.
The museum is currently closed for the season. See you in the spring of 2021!
