Barrington museums

Fodor's Review

The town of Barrington, on the mainland side of the Cape Sable Island Causeway, has several old buildings near to each other along Highway 3 that are worth visiting. These include the self-explanatory Barrington Woolen Mill, at No. 2368; the Old Meeting House Museum, at No. 2408, where gatherings, elections, and religious services were held; the Seal Island Light Museum, at No. 2410, which occupies a replica lighthouse; and the Western Counties

Military Museum, at No. 2401.
