This settlement goes back to the early 1800's. There are many original tools, bldgs., & other associated articles. There are houses and barns to tour and is a great educational experience for the kids.

We enjoyed our visit to this historic village. It's not very big but houses some pretty buildings including a shop, a school house and a church. We had a chance to have a chat with the blacksmith which was fun. All on-site staff wear period costumes .Great location for kids and families. Beautiful setting. Very enjoyable .

Initial entrance is an old barn with old machinery. The buildings are the other side of the barn and include a church, school house and store. The woman in the store was very informative. Also, some live animals i.e. horses, goats, pigs and chickens. I saw the horses being brought out to be harnessed to do some work. Very peaceful wandering around the buildings. You need comfy shoes to walk over the grass to the buildings. I would like to have bought a coffee and relaxed in the village but there is no cafe. I visited on a dry day but you would need an umbrella to walk between the buildings on a wet day.

We visited here while on a recent trip to PEI. This was a pleasant surprise, the village isn't huge but there were a nice variety of buildings that have been nicely restored.

We especially enjoyed the live animals that were on the property.

We really enjoyed our visit here as it shows a clear depiction of life on the island in the late 1800's and early 20th century.
