Most historic buildings were not originally designed to accommodate people with disabilities. Providing access (interior and exterior) for persons with disabilities in ways that preserve the character of the historic property is a challenge that requires creativity and collaboration. As we seek to make improvements to the built environment, we are focusing our attention on providing digital and print images for physically inaccessible spaces and increasing outdoor interpretive programming. Please contact us for more details.

Our site currently consists of:

  • Entry to the building is on the south side but requires travelling across a bumpy lawn and then up two uneven granite steps.
  • Inside the building, paths are wide and wooden benches provide seating.
  • The second floor is only accessible via a narrow wooden stairway.
  • Staff members are available to share stories and historical information about site.
  • No washroom on-site. Gender-neutral washrooms in nearby Shelburne County Museum.
  • The Dory Shop is proud to be an Aira Access Partner.

This webpage will be updated as we make improvements.
