Fairfields, Nepean’s first designated heritage property, was home to five generations of the Bell family. This family was most noted for their successful farming endeavours as well as their prominent roles in both law and politics in Nepean. 

Currently, the Nepean Museum provides seasonal, onsite interpretive tours of Fairfields.  The tour, approximately an hour long, presents the history of the five generations that lived at Fairfields from 1823 until 2000.  The interior of the home has been refurnished with artefacts that reflect different themes of the Bell family history. Visitors will learn about the family’s entrepreneurial, philanthropic, professional and political activities.

Tours are available by appointment between 10 am and 4 pm.
