Step back in time with us as we visit the Roma Settlement at Brudenell Point and experience life in the 1730s.
Established in 1732 by Jean Pierre de Roma as a French fishing and trading colony, it is now designated as a Canadian National Historic Site.
This living museum with bilingual costumed interpreters gives the visitor a sense of what life was like in the French colony on ÎIe St. Jean, now Prince Edward Island. A visit to Roma’s settlement is both informative and enjoyable.
Walk a trail, visit the gardens, see how fish was preserved, join in a children’s game of 1732. Enjoy a heritage style lunch featuring bread baked on site in the clay oven.
Time permitting we may be able to visit the nearby town of Georgetown, the capital of Kings County.
The home port of the Nellie J. Banks, PEI’s most famous rum-runner in the days of prohibition, Georgetown is a fishing village and deep water port. We can stop for photos in the town gardens and perhaps drop in on the local sea glass artisan and jewelry maker.
