Today in Island History
1883 "The gold fever is striking hard here," a West Prince observer writes the Examiner. Traces of gold and silver have been found at Cape Wolfe. Now everybody thinks they've found more: at Souris, in Tignish, on Rustico Island. But PEI is no gold mine.

Orwell Corner Historic Village

Due to COVID-19, we have decided to close all of our provincial museums until further notice, effective immediately. Thank you for your understanding.

Surround yourself with the mood, charm and activities of a small Prince Edward Island agricultural crossroads in the 1890s.

Engage in the daily programming, specially chosen to keep children happy, while learning and having tons of fun with the animals. Drop by the general store and the PEI Agricultural Heritage Museum. Visit the working blacksmith shop, stroll through the gardens and have a picnic outside the old schoolhouse or by a scenic look-off to the beautiful Orwell Bay.
