AAA Editor Notes
Province House National Historic Site is at Richmond and Great George sts. next to the Confederation Centre of the Arts. The stately, three-story building was the site of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference, a meeting among representatives from Britain's North American colonies that ultimately led to the creation of Canada in 1867. Today it's both a historic landmark and the current seat of Prince Edward Island's legislature. You'll recognize the Greek Revival sandstone building, completed in 1847, by its four large columns supporting a classical triangular pediment.

Note: The building currently is closed for a multi-year conservation project; it is scheduled to reopen in 2021. An alternative interpretive exhibit, The Story of Confederation, is available at the Confederation Centre of the Arts, including an impressive and true-to-life replica of the Confederation Chamber, a viewing of Parks Canada’s new orientation film “The Building of Destiny,” and an exterior kiosk providing interpretation.
