  • A national historic site that is older than our Country. An important Charlottetown landmark that is worth a visit.
  • Sweet historical spot. It is well preserved and the actor-guides are a nice touch. The visit is quite quick, but it sure is interesting to see where Canada started (was founded).
  • This is were it all began Canada . I love this building and am looking forward to seeing it open In a few years
  • The history and grand architecture is remarkable! Being apart of the team tasked with preserving and renovating this building has been a fortunate opportunity!
  • Happy 150 Canada. Home to Canada's humble beginnings
