Today in Island History
1863 The Society for the encouragement and revival of the Ancient and National Music of Old Scotland stages a noisy bagpipe contest before 600 spectators in Charlottetown. Oldtimer Donald McFadyen finishes third -- with a 10 shilling bonus for wearing the kilt. 1860 The Dundas Rum Riot. When a drunken crowd disrupts the trial of an unlicensed American rum-seller, a battle royal erupts between the local Sons of Temperance and the tipplers. Demon Rum wins the battle -- but loses the war. The unlicensed seller is shut down.

Elmira Railway Museum

For many years Elmira Station served as the end of the line for Prince Edward Island's railway. Today, displays of photographs, maps and artifacts, a recreated station master's office and ladies' waiting room recount the fascinating story of railroading on the Island.

Take a ride on our minature railway. See the speeders and our trolley too.

Hike or bike along the scenic Confederation Trail through PEI woodlots and farmland that were converted from abandoned railway lines, a number of years ago.
