Province House National Historic Site Of Canada, Charlottetown Reviews
Sweet historical spot. It is well preserved and the actor-guides are a nice touch. The visit is quite quick, but it sure is interesting to see where Canada started (was founded).
This is were it all began Canada . I love this building and am looking forward to seeing it open In a few years
The history and grand architecture is remarkable! Being apart of the team tasked with preserving and renovating this building has been a fortunate opportunity!
Happy 150 Canada. Home to Canada's humble beginnings
Nice architecture; currently undergoing major renovations (June 2017) that detract from the ability to enjoy the building
