Ardgowan National Historic Site

Former residence of William Henry Pope, politician and delegate to the 1864 Charlottetown Conference, Ardgowan National Historic Site is now home to Parks Canada’s administration offices on Prince Edward Island. Restored to the 1860s period, the 5 acre grounds around this “picturesque cottage” offer a view into tranquil Victorian life and are a welcome and peaceful green space near the heart of downtown Charlottetown. Enjoy a leisurely stroll along the garden paths or bring a picnic and rest awhile under the beautiful trees.
