Roma at Three Rivers is a National Historic Site on Prince Edward Island
Jean Pierre Roma at Three Rivers
 one of Canada's earliest designated National Historic Sites

 This historic site brings to life the story of Jean Pierre Roma, the French merchant  who in 1732 established an international trading post at Trois Rivières. Today Roma's time is given life through lively interactive programs such as  the Pioneer Festival  and Heritage Lunches.

The site presents guides in period clothing for interpretation of the French heritage garden, the artifacts, children's toys & games and to explain  Jean Pierre Roma's significance to PEI history.

The history buff who wants to explore independently  can follow the 9 km of forested trails along the Brudenell and Montague Rivers complete with interpretive signs along the 1 km-long Heritage Trail portion. As well artifacts from the time of Roma (1732 to 1745) unearthed in 1970 are on display in the Heritage building adjacent to the Pavilion where many of the Roma events are held.

The site has beautiful picnic areas and a unique timber frame barbeque shelter with a large outdoor clay oven.  The Roma site also provides prebooked Heritage Meals such as the Roma Feast held annually.

 In the 1730s Roma's dreams, feuds and parties enlivened the wilderness. And today the Roma site is again enlivened by the story of Jean Pierre Roma, the Frenchman who dreamed big dreams.

ROMA'S COORDINATES

Jean Pierre Roma at Three Rivers is a member of Points East Costal Drive
Meachams Atlas 1880

There is going to be an archaeological "DIG" at Roma July 6 to 10... where better then Brudenell Point and its rich history. Jean Pierre Roma settled the Point in 1732 calling it Trois-Rivières ... A.A. Macdonald, Father of Confederation was born at the Point in 1829 ... while the 1880 Meachams Atlas shows the Point belonging to Malcolm Shaw. And this brings us back to the "DIG". All that remains of the Malcolm Shaw home is an indent in the ground (basement) where the house once stood. However during the 1970 "dig" focusing primarily on the Roma era, there were items unhearthed from the Malcome Shaw property which will be on display this summer.

Are there any budding archaeologists out there that would like to take part in the "DIG" ... we are looking for volunteers. By July 6th and 7th volunteers will be needed to help remove the sod while opening the site. Interested?  Contact Provincial Archaeologist Dr. Helen Kristmanson, Director, Aboriginal Affairs and Archaeology at hekristmanson@gov.pe.ca or    902-368-6895.
