Visitors can take in four historic sites in Sydney during a short walking tour. Cossit House was built in 1787 for an Anglican minister who moved to Cape Breton after the American Revolution. Guests are invited to participate in activities typical of the 1700s, such as churning butter, dipping candles and weaving a rag rug. Jost Heritage House, built the same year, includes a reconstructed 18th-century apothecary. There’s a small museum inside St. Patrick’s Church, erected in 1828 for the city’s Roman Catholic community. Finally, the Cape Breton Centre for Heritage & Science covers both the cultural and natural history of the island.
