Located in the heart of Summerside?s vibrant downtown cultural district, in Prince Edward Island the Lefurgey Cultural Centre is part of a larger collection of notable heritage sites known as the Wyatt Heritage Properties.

Extensive and skillful restoration have created an unmatched blend of culture and elegant architecture perfect for any special celebration.

The Wyatt Foundation presented three Historic houses to the City of Summerside in 2000. It was a gift envisioned by the late Wanda Lefurgey Wyatt and was gratefully received by the City to become the cornerstone as well as the physical location for its heritage and cultural programs.

Wyatt Heritage Properties include:

The MacNaught History Centre and Archives was acquired in 1998 and houses archival resources.

The Wyatt House is the center piece of the properties and treats visitors to a look into the lives of the prominent Wyatt family who resided here for over a hundred years.

The Lefurgey Cultural Centre is dedicated to arts education and training and to cultural learning.

The mural is the work of artist Greg Garand and is one of 10 murals in Summerside completed by Island artists.
