About Province House National Historic Site Of Canada, Charlottetown

The site of the Charlottetown Conference of 1864, the first meeting that led to Canadian confederation in 1867, Province house has more than earned its historical heritage reputation. A fine example of neo classical architecture, the building holds prime position in Queen Square. Province House was designed in 1839 by Isaac Smith. It was completed on the 26 January, 1847. The main purpose of the building was to house a Legislative Assembly, found on the second storey. Province House also contains a Legislative Council on the second storey where the delegates to the Charlottetown Conference held their meetings in September 1864.

Visitors can learn about the history of the site and the current Legislative Assembly through guided tours, displays and an audio-visual presentation.
