PEI Potato Museum, O'Leary
Last Sunday I visited the P.E.I. Potato Museum with my parents. The museum has many aspects to it - the story of the origins of the potato is told as well as the history and importance of the potato industry to our Province. There's also a great gift shop with potato related products; a cafe where you can sample potato fudge and other food made from potatoes; a local museum of artifacts, photos and the history of the area; and a park behind the museum with four historic buildings - a schoolhouse, log barn, church and telephone office. I will tell more of those buildings in later postings.
