P.E.I. project tops list

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

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.
