The Lefurgey Cultural Centre, an 1867 shipbuilder?s home, is now dedicated to arts education and training, and to cultural learning located in Summerside, Prince Edward Island in Canada.
Once the home of Wanda Wyatt?s maternal grandfather, John E. Lefurgey, this stately residence was acquired by Miss Wyatt in 1966 and officially opened five years later as a centre for local artisans to pursue and teach their crafts in Summrside.
Today, art and Music lessons are conducted here, as well as a variety of local cultural and heritage activities.
The Lefurgey Cultural Centre, on the corner of Granville and Prince Streets in down town Summerside, Prince Edward Island, offers facilities for local individuals to conduct private art and Music lessons. It has also been used for a variety of local cultural activities and is a convenient gathering place for groups such as the Summerside Historical Society.
As part of the Wyatt Heritage Properties, the house provides office space for the Manager of the properties, the museum cataloguer, and various temporary museum interpretive and program staff. The summer tourist season was used as an opportunity to have a gift shop in the front parlour, as well as a modest Tea Room in the drawing room.
