AAA Editor Notes

The MacDonald House is on Hwy. 395. Overlooking Lake Ainslie, this pioneer farmhouse is furnished with antiques and items that reflect life in rural 1800s Cape Breton. Nearby are two barns with several wagons, buggies and wheeled farm implements. The property also contains hiking trails and a one-room schoolhouse that operated 1921-54; re-enactments occasionally take place here. Picnicking is permitted.
$5; $10 (family, parents and school-age children).
Hours: Tues.-Sun. 10-5, June-Aug.; by appointment rest of year.
