At Sea


Summerside, Prince Edward Island
The founding and development of Summerside is a fascinating story of Canada's 19th century entrepreneurial spirit. The primary economic drivers were wooden shipbuilding and Silver Fox farming. Both industries ultimately went into decline, as steel ships and different fashion trends superceded them. Summerside was also the trading center for the farmers on Prince Edward Island, with good water and rail connections.

Summerside is well known as a showplace for 19th century and early 20th century homes and marvelous architecture. Taking a walking tour through the Historic House District and along the Water Street Commercial District will introduce you to many of Summerside's beautiful heritage buildings. You can see tree-lined streets, stately 1890s Queen Anne homes, the Four Squares and Colonial Revivals of merchants and fox men, and Prince County Courthouse. Walk along Water Street, the commercial core of this "City on the Bays", and past some of Summerside's oldest public buildings, through the "Old Village" that developed between Queen's Wharf and Joseph Greene's Inn. You will see buildings dating back to Summerside's shipbuilding boom, Gothic Revivals, and Georgians.
