We went to Orwell Historic Village with our three children (10,8,6) and they all asked if we could go back again the next day. The highlights were making their own candles, taking home a hook that they watched the blacksmith make, playing with the baby...More

A trip back in time to an authentic farming village on Prince Edward Island in the 1890's. Sort of like a miniature Colonial Williamsburg (but with original buildings?) including a farmhouse, blacksmith shop, church, schoolhouse, general store, etc. Many exhibits feature original farm equipment and...More

After a HUGE disappointment with Avonlea Village, I absolutely LOVED this place. It is a historic village that stands as it was. The owners are so friendly and approachable and encouraged the children to interact with the animals. We went for a horse drawn wagon...More

This is not a re-created village.....it stands as it was built with the exception of the agricultural museum. It's one of the few like left in North America. It's a great place for the entire family to visit, again and again.

This settlement goes back to the early 1800's. There are many original tools, bldgs., & other associated articles. There are houses and barns to tour and is a great educational experience for the kids.

Initial entrance is an old barn with old machinery. The buildings are the other side of the barn and include a church, school house and store. The woman in the store was very informative. Also, some live animals i.e. horses, goats, pigs and chickens. I...More
