Jost House Museum

Once the home of a prominent merchant, Jost House, circa 1786, was purchased by Thomas Jost in 1836. Jost was a Halifax merchant and his family remained on the property until 1971. Today the house is filled with Victorian artifacts and each room features a different theme. The kitchen is housed in the basement with a cooking fireplace and a beehive bake-oven. Local collections can be found within the house, as well as 20th century medicinals, marine display and exhibits of local interest. This building shows the evolution of a wooden dwelling over two centuries.
