Ross Bay Villa was the home (1865-1878) of Francis J. Roscoe, Member of Parliament for Victoria (1874-1878), his wife Anna Letitia Roscoe and their 5 children.
Saved from demolition in 1999 and meticulously restored by volunteers over the past 18 years, the house again reflects the period in the 1860's and 70's when the Roscoe family were in residence.
Volunteers offer guided tours through the restored rooms every Saturday at 2 pm and by appointment for groups tours. Lectures, workshops, exhibits, concerts and special events are held in the house and the restored garden throughout the year. The house and garden are also available for rentals such as book groups, weddings and Christmas parties.
Ross Bay Villa Historic House Museum is owned and operated by the Ross Bay Villa Society. The Society is a Canadian registered charitable organization, and a member of the B.C. Museums Association.
Ross Bay Villa is located at 1490 Fairfield Road in Victoria, British Columbia.
