Beaconsfield Historic House reminds visitors of the Victorian charm of the 19th century. The exquisite mansion was built in 1877 in a great location by Victoria Park, overlooking the Charlottetown Harbour. Its 25 rooms and eight fireplaces not only provide insight into the fashions of The Gilded Age but also make the former residence a true historical treasure. Beyond the banana-yellow facade, you can't miss the carriage house, which hosts a children's festival in the summer. Tours are offered year round, and the on-site bookstore sells an assortment of material on the history and the architecture of the island.
