Today in Island History
1885 The community of Pownal greets is first, and only, newspaper. The Pownal Argus isn't even typeset. The handwritten monthly lasts two issues, writer's cramp presumably having crippled the editor.

Elmira Railway Museum

For many years Elmira Station served as the end of the line for Prince Edward Island's railway. Today, displays of photographs, maps and artifacts, a recreated station master's office and ladies' waiting room recount the fascinating story of railroading on the Island.

Take a ride on our miniature railway. See the speeders and our trolley too.

Hike or bike along the scenic Confederation Trail through nearby woodlots and farmland converted from abandoned railway lines a number of years ago.
