Unfortunately, we were only able to see the outside of this beautiful home. We were disappointed to learn it was closed during our visit to Charlottetown.

We love old homes. Nice young tour guide. 30 minute tour for $5. Great way to start your day. Rise and fall of a prominent businessman who refused to change with the times.

Weren't allowed to walk into rooms. Only four to see down stairs and six upstairs. Not all of the house was view-able. No basement, third floor, bell tower, or other half of the house. Five bucks for guided tour.
