Today in Island History
1858 Charles Stanfield and W. W. Lord announce they are ready for "drying, fulling, and dressing cloth" at their new mill in Tryon. Stanfield sells out in 1867 and finally sets up in Truro, Nova Scotia. There he starts making underwear. The rest is history.

Elmira Railway Museum


For many years Elmira Station served as the end of the line for Prince Edward Island's railway. Today, displays of photographs, maps and artifacts, a recreated station master's office and ladies' waiting room recount the fascinating story of railroading on the Island.

Take a ride on our minature railway. See the speeders and our trolley too.

Hike or bike along the scenic Confederation Trail through PEI woodlots and farmland that has been converted from abandoned railway lines.

We are closed Saturdays and Sundays!
