The three rivers, Cardigan, Georgetown and Montague flow into
Cardigan Bay hence the name “Three Rivers”. In 1732
Jean Pierre Roma settled here and founded a base for control
of the Gulf fisheries and trade with Louisbourg, France, Quebec
and the West Indies. It is said that all PEI roads during this
era led to the Roma site, which was destroyed by fire after
the fall of Louisbourg in 1745. The Mi’kmaq people lived
at the point long before the advent of European fishermen as
evidenced by artifacts from their culture, which have been discovered
in the area. This settlement is being reconstructed to bring
us back in time.

The Kings Playhouse, the cultural centre for the performing
arts in Eastern P.E.I., features live theater productions in
the summer months, and other programs throughout the year. The
original Playhouse was designed to be a community centre/townhall.
It was built in 1897, and was designed by the notable Island
architect William Critchlow Harris.
fateful day, a train failed to stop at the railway terminal
on the opposite side of the street. The errant vehicle crossed
Kent Street and slammed into the side of the venerable building,
almost striking several individuals who were working inside
the structure. Furthermore, a large tinted window located
on the west side of the building was severely damaged.
1983, as the theater was being further renovated, tragedy
struck. In February of that year, during the worst storm of
the season, fire broke out and destroyed the building. A group
of individuals who refused to be disheartened by this stroke
of fate sought to begin the process of rebuilding. Based on
the original design, and after much painstaking work, the
new building - christened the 'Kings Playhouse' - opened its
doors to the public in 1987. Come and enjoy theatrical performances
and concerts featuring Maritime artists. Call for information:
