Welcome to New Glasgow, Prince Edward Island!
Noted as One of Canada’s prettiest little towns in Harrow-smith Country Life Magazine, New Glasgow is a small village nestled in Queen’s County, Prince Edward Island.
We invite you to stroll our boardwalk and visit the establishments of “today”. Pause at the many interpretive sites located along the way to enjoy a glimpse into our bustling community of “yesterday”.
Leaving behind their beloved Glasgow, Scotland in 1819-1820, families set sail aboard wooden saling ships such as the Alexander, to carve out a new life in a new land. Hence the name ‘New’ Glasgow. It is stated these early settlers, touching terra firma within a small cove on the River Clyde for the first time following a long and difficult sea journey, held a prayer meeting thanking God for their safe arrival.
As you cross the bridge in the village, watch for osprey, bald eagles, Great Blue Herons and other species of waterfowl that frequent these shallow waters. This area once boasted a profitable shipbuilding era, a time when wooden brigs set sail for other parts of the World.
Please feel free to visit The Community of New Glasgow on Facebook for local events and community happenings.
