Carleton County Historical Society – Connell House

Tea at the Connell House

There are few better locations for a real Victorian high tea than the historic Connell House, a restored 19th-century Greek Revival gem found in downtown Woodstock. Homemade scones with clotted cream, delicate sandwiches and a variety of tempting sweets are served on real china by staff in period costume, while a melody of piano tunes play in the background.  After your meal, tour the historic mansion’s four exhibit rooms, including an exhibit of historic and contemporary Aboriginal Art; an exhibit based on a local man credited with saving the birch bark canoe; an exhibit that includes over 75 historic musical instruments and an exhibit that showcases some of Carleton Counties Military History including a boy’s childhood collection of over 1000 lead toy soldiers!
