Entrance Hall

Museum hallway

The main door of the Boultenhouse Heritage Centre gives access to the spacious entrance hall which is set up to receive visitors and accomodate publications sales. The stairway gives access to the upper floor (not currently part of the museum).


At the left rear of the hallway is one of the museum’s most significant artifacts — the original tall-case clock that came over from Yorkshire with Charles Dixon and family in 1772. The clock was donated to the Centre by Ray Dixon.

Friends of Boultenhouse

A display on the wall acknowledges the Friends of Boultenhouse whose donations to the capital campaign made the project possible.

Also in the hallway (next to the main door) is a plaque commemorating Daniel Lund (1845–1919), a Sackville pioneer.
