Orwell Corner Historic Village home to the PEI Agricultural Heritage Museum an agricultural crossroads first settled in the early 1800’s. Restored to its late 19th century state in the early 70’s its charm lies in exploring the old church and cemetery, picnicking beside the schoolhouse or visiting the working blacksmith shop. You can even stop by the barnyard to see horses, goats, pigs and maybe even chickens! Outside you can get an amazing view of Orwell Bay that will leave you breathless.
