Folk & Heritage Centre


Sight-seeing
by Treva McNally

The paintings of A.L. Morrison illustrate the history of Prince Edward Island so well that in1980 his book, My Island Pictures, was in every grade 6 classroom on Prince Edward Island accompanying the course in Island history. This beautifully illustrated book contains thirty-five full-colour reproductions of his work, and next to each painting is a story describing the

New interpretive facility in Mount Stewart nears completion

by Treva McNally

Mount Stewart is situated on the Hillsborough River, surrounded by brooks filled with trout, a wildlife management area home to over fifty eagles, and wetlands where migrating waterfowl visit each fall. The Confederation Trail, the Tracadie Trail, and the Pigot Trail all converge here so it is fitting that the residents are

Province House

Site-seeing
by Treva McNally

At the foot of University Avenue sits an imposing, yet unpretentious, neoclassical building which dominates the downtown core of Charlottetown. It is the symbol of the downtown area on the city signs and is regularly shown on television whenever politicians are interviewed. The building is Province House, steeped in history and still in operation as the provincial legislature.

by Treva McNally

The Eptek Art and Culture Centre in Summerside is part of a complex which includes the beautiful Jubilee Theatre and the P.E.I. Sports Hall of Fame. Approaching the Eptek entrance, the first thing you see are beautiful stained glass pictures hanging in the windows. Created by Muriel Lanque, they were donated to the Centre in her memory in 1994 and this donation is symbolic

Museé Acadien

Site-seeing
by Treva McNally

Just a few miles past Summerside on the All Weather Highway in Miscouche is the Acadian Museum of Prince Edward Island. This large modern building was constructed in1992, but the Museum was created many years earlier by a group of Island Acadians who wanted to preserve their heritage. 2004 marks both the 40th anniversary of the Museum and the 400th anniversary of the first

Bideford Parsonage

Site-seeing
by Treva McNally

Not far from Lennox Island, in eastern Prince County, is the Bideford Parsonage Museum. One reason for its historical fame is that Lucy Maude Montgomery lived there in 1894­95 while at her first teaching post at the Bideford School, but if that was all this beautifully restored home could lay claim to, it is possible that it might not have become a Provincially Designated

Social Prominence

Site-seeing
by Treva McNally

Across from the provincial government offices, just where the boardwalk begins at Victoria Park, a large, golden yellow Victorian home dominates the street scape. This elegant residence is Beaconsfield Historic House, one of the most interesting homes in Charlottetown.

In 1877, when wealthy businessman James Peake wanted a prestigious home for his young family, he chose

MIlitary History

Site-seeing
by Treva McNally

The militia has a long history on PEI beginning in 1780 when the Island’s first Militia Act was passed. It has been through many changes since then before emerging as the Prince Edward Island Regiment, a reserve unit based at the Queen Charlotte Armoury at the west end of Water Street in Charlottetown. Outside the Armoury, a vintage tank and armoured vehicle are on display; i

PEI Potato Museum tells the story of the Island's most important product

Sight-seeing
by Treva McNally

In 1985, a museum consultant from Ottawa surveyed all the museums on PEI. When he saw the small potato exhibit in the O'Leary Community Museum, he suggested more focus be placed on potatoes because the industry so dominated the area. Dr. George Dewar, a long time resident and supporter of West Prince,

The Best Thing
by Treva Mcnally

There is a challenge in writing about the "best thing that happened to me" this summer because at a certain age, life is no longer made up of big events. Rather, it is a compilation of all the wonderful little things that happen to us and with this as my criterion, my summer was full of "best things":

1. The arrival of a fourth grandchild, Jamie Rose, who is a darling
