Orwell Corner Historic Village


Orwell Corner depicts the Village circa 1890.

Nestled in the hills of Orwell, Kings County, Prince Edward Island you will find one of seven PEI Museum sites.

Your first stop will be the Agricultural Museum. Here you will enjoy the many artifacts that have been used in farming and fishing
throughout the years. There is also a mini video presentation of interviews with men and women who have lived and left us telling us of simpler times in by gone years.

Next you will enter the Village. This is a true village. Nothing has been moved here. It was the Village of Orwell Corner. Some 40 years ago the school was consolidating, the Church was amalgamating, the farmer was selling his land, along with the general store and post office attached to his house and the blacksmith shop adjacent the the farm. Also at the corner was the local Town Hall.

Since the acquisition of the properties we have added two more pieces of land and houses that are still being worked on and will open in the future.

The Village is a working village with horses working the fields, farm hands working around the village, in the store and blacksmith shop.

There is also a tea room in the Hall where you can get a light snack and beverage.

This is truly one of PEI’s Gems, and a MUST see on your tour of PEI Check us out.
