Come experience life in a 1700s in a french international trade post at Jean Pierre Roma’s settlement.

Jean Pierre Roma, along with a ship loads of fishermen, indensured servants and provisions, settled on the Roma Point in present day Brudenell, PEI in 1732. His tragic story had a brutal end. In 1745, a New English militia came and burnt down the settlement, after conquering Louisbourg.

Today, Roma at Three Rivers is a living museum. Our interpreters take the role of settlers and guide you through what it was like to be one of Roma’s workers in the 1700s. Come have you hand at quill pen writing, see how we use our island stone brick oven to bake our bread, learn the tricks of the trade of cod fishing, or take part in many other daily activities.

Don’t miss our heritage lunches, offered from 12pm to 1:30pm. Whether you choose our Soup of the Day, Seafood Chowder, Fishcakes and bean or Pulled Pork, you won’t go home unsatisfied.

We look forward to seeing you at Roma this summer!

Notes from "Bread List!"

Lots of historic places actually bake bread as part of their programming!

As one of my colleagues said in a recent blog, which inspired this this:

If we take that word wilderness to mean “the unknown” we can make an argument about the use of bread as a comforting symbol of home and of culture against the great uncertainty we are collectively living through. (“The Stuff of Life: The Living Heritage of Bread in a Time of Change”, Kristin Catherwood)
