The maids and hired hands of Keillor House, circa 1813, are here to guide you on a journey into a colourful corner of New Brunswick’s past.

The Keillor story is not one that you hear often: A tale of hard work and diligence where a simple yoeman-farmer from Yorkshire, England, raised his social status to become a respected Gentleman; no simple feat in those times.

The story weaves through the handsome Georgian stone mansion and touches on place and politics of a young New Brunswick, and leads through the entire Victorian era and a cavalcade of unique and interesting characters.  Your journey also includes a visit to the Coach House where the Dorchester Penitentiary exhibit provides a glimpse into a world that most never see.
