Bonaventure Historical Society offers free guided tours on the second weekend of every month. Our tours begin at 2 PM on both Saturday and Sunday. These tours take about one hour and are hosted by trained BHS tour guides. There is a limit of 30 visitors per guide; if more people show up, we divide those in attendance into smaller groups so everyone can be as close to the guide as possible as he or she narrates the tour. Please see our Facebook Page for any changes or updates.

If your schedule prevents you from visiting on scheduled guided tour days, you can always tour by yourself using the mobile tour app for Apple and Android devices (both phone and tablet). Download for your iOS or Android device.

Another option is to visit the BHS Visitors Center, where you can get a copy of the Historical Society Guide – for which we greatly appreciate donations. You can also purchase an illustrated, three-dimensional map of the entire property for $8.

We offer private tours for non-profit groups and schools only. The minimum group size is ten people. For smaller groups please contact one of the local tour companies or download our app.
