Glenaladale Estate is an ecological and architectural gem. It includes an 1884 three-storey brick home, an 1899 schoolhouse, and 530 acres of mixed woods and farmland, with 2000 feet of shorefront on Tracadie Bay.
Established in 1772, Glenaladale was home to four generations of the family of Captain John MacDonald, Laird of Glenaladale & Glenfinnan in Scotland. Capt. John and his grandson Sir William C. Macdonald are both recognized as persons of National Historic Significance. In 1905, Glenaladale was sold to the MacKinnon family— known for their silver black fox farm and rum-running exploits.
In 2018, Glenaladale Heritage Trust purchased the Estate and is now carrying out a dynamic plan of regeneration. Come visit and learn why people call Glenaladale “PEI’s own Downton Abbey”!
