Most historic buildings were not originally designed to accommodate people with disabilities. Providing access (interior and exterior) for persons with disabilities in ways that preserve the character of the historic property is a challenge that requires creativity and collaboration. As we seek to make improvements to the built environment, we are focusing our attention on providing digital and print images for physically inaccessible spaces and increasing outdoor interpretive programming. Please contact us for more details.

Our site currently consists of:

  • Parking is available on the street.
  • The front entrance is a series of broad gravelled levels leading to wide wooden steps.
  • Most of the garden (backyard) is wheelchair accessible.
  • The house does not have electricity and depends on natural light. Sometimes the interior is quite dark. 
  • The second floor is only accessed by a narrow wooden staircase.
  • Staff members are available to share stories and historical information about site.
  • No on-site washroom. Gender-neutral washrooms at other nearby St. Patrick's Museum.
  • Cossit House is proud to be an Aira Access Partner.

This webpage will be updated as we make improvements.
