AAA Editor Notes
Orwell Corner Historic Village is off Hwy. 1, following signs. Visitors to this restored small rural crossroads village of the late 1890s can tour a period home, general store, church, community hall, post office, smithy, shingle mill and barns. The shopkeeper's home is outfitted with such items as a cast-iron stove, horsehair sofa, pump organ, 1820s loom and spinning wheels.
The barns house horses, cows, chickens, goats, pigs and sheep. Carts, wagons, farm machinery and tools from the late 19th century are displayed. The vintage farm equipment in the PEI Agricultural Heritage Museum helps tell the story of European agriculture on the island from the 17th century to 1950.
