  • Asked a resident what was Founders' Hall and was told there is a restaurant inside along with bathroom facilities. It was a museum but that has moved out. 
  • Nothing going on here. Had once been a tourist info spot. Only thing there now is a Dave's Lobster which was completely empty. There is a new tourist info spot just a few steps away.

  • Great for Canadian history but this place needs a serious update - started to look a little dated.
  • A fascinating place to visit for anyone interested in the formation of Canada. As a Canadian it was a real eye opener as to the politics that lead to the signing of Confederation. Great place to visit for Canadian history buffs.
  • A interesting way to learn about Canadian History (esp. for an American).
