Arlene Collins Art Gallery
Located at 10182 Highway 209, Diligent River. Growing up in the country, Arlene’s love for art began at a young age, sketching wildlife scenes and admiring the beauty of landscapes. She was born near Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, and began painting in the early 90’s, first experimenting with acrylics, but preferring oils because of better control and a truer color.(Open by Chance or Appointment)

After thriving for nearly a century as a country inn, Ottawa House is now a museum devoted to exhibiting and interpreting part of Tupper's life, as well as the seafaring, lumbering and social history of the Parrsboro Shore.
