The Cossit House was interesting, as everything is authentic. No electricity lends a sense of how people actually live back in 1787. We smelled bread being baked, but never saw it. The raised bed garden out back had vegetables & herbs. Narrow stairways and rooms were roped off - you can look - but you shouldn't touch! Museum admission was... 更多
Wonderfully original 1 1/2 story wooden house built in the 1780's. The house has not been updated so electrical service is missing. One can really get the feel for life in the 1700 when the day is dark and rainy. The poor, period dressed, volunteers bravely manage the hardships of no heat or light. The admission fee is now $3.00/person.... 更多

Part of several small historical buildings in this area of the city - close to the Government Wharf where the cruise ships dock - making them easily accessible to tourists via a short walk. Something to take in for sure if you have not seen them!
Truly, her name was Thankful! Yes, this was not being made up. Possibly, the oldest house in Sydney, Cossit House was built in 1787 by a Loyalist Anglican minister and his wife, Thankful. It is located in the same North Sydney neighborhood which boasts eight of the oldest North American buildings. Open annually from June 1 through October 15, Cosssit... 更多
Museum was super - staff well versed in local history and history of the Cossit Family house. Quaint house that interprets family life in the 1800"s. Emily, Jan and Laurie make you feel very welcomed.
