Today in Island History
1780 Governor Patterson, an Irishman, forwards to Britain an act re-naming St. John's Island "New Ireland." The act is disallowed because the name is already taken and, besides, the colony should petition for a change, not legislate one. The Island isn't crazy about Britain's suggestions: New Guernsey or New Anglesea.

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.
