Various Scenic Pictures of Prince Edward Island

Fortune, Prince Edward Island

A turn of the century summer gathering location for many of New York`s aristocratic theatre crowd, Fortune has been the scene of a variety of historic events over the course of the last 150 years. From the early 19th century tenants farmers who rebelled against their absentee landlords, a series of events which eventually brought major land reform to the entire province, to providing the setting for American playwright Elmer Harris` "Johnny Belinda", Fortune has long been a centre of activity in Kings County.

Today, Harris` original home has been restored and now houses the beautiful Inn at Bay Fortune. Featuring a four-star restaurant which boasts a dazzling array of culinary masterpieces, the Inn exudes all the elegance and regal beauty so intrinsically linked with the Fortune Peninsula.
