P.E.I. project tops list
A P.E.I. restoration plan is within grasp of earning a piece of a $234,000 prize in a national heritage competition.
The Glenaladale School House in Tracadie leads the list of projects vying in the small project category in eastern Canada for the National Trust’s This Place Matters program.
Glenaladale Heritage Trust plans to purchase and restore the historic Glenaladale Estate on Tracadie Bay, which was established in 1772.
The trust is looking to raise $10,000 through This Place Matters to move the 1899 Tracadie School House, which is located on the property, using the traditional methods of horses and logs.
Eventually the trust plans to renovate the school into a welcoming cultural gateway at the entrance of the estate.
