Place Description

The Bishop's Residence, or Palace as it is known as locally, is a large stone Italianate and Gothic Revival influenced residence and rectory located on historic Great George Street. In the past, it has been used not only as a home for the Bishop of the Diocese of Charlottetown, but also as the Diocesan office, a retirement home for priests, a convent and St. Dunstan's Cathedral Basilica rectory. It is located next door to the magnificent St. Dunstan's Cathedral Basilica, a National Historic Site. The designation encompasses the building's exterior and parcel; it does not include the building's interior.
