The Wyatt House Museum

The Wyatt House Museum in Summerside, Prince County, Canada | Museum | Historical Society | Historic Site

The Wyatt House Museum located at 85 Spring Street, Summerside, Prince Edward Island in Canada houses the Wyatt Family History.

This historic residence of one of Prince Edward Island?s most distinguished citizens, the late Wanda Lefurgey Wyatt, has been sensitively restored to its former elegance and charm in Summerside.

The Wyatt House Museum, a 1867 house is a treasure trove of antique furnishings and offers an opportunity to experience the life and times of the Wyatt family over more than a century. Plan to visit this special Museum and step back in time with a guided interpretive tour.

In January of 1998, at the grand age of 102 years, Wanda slipped peacefully into an everlasting sleep. She was ushered into the next world to the strains of one of her favourite songs, "Beautiful Dreamer". She loved to show off her house. Today, many visitors yearly admire this gracious lady?s keen eye for collecting as they are escorted through her lifelong home at 85 Spring Street, nestled among the shady heritage streets of Summerside.

The Wyatt House is full of wonderful furnishings. Over a period of two and one-half years, approximately 1070 artifacts have been catalogued, from the largest furniture pieces to the smallest items. Many more are awaiting description.

The Wyatt family loved objects of history and had a fondness for collecting interesting furniture pieces. Ned Wyatt, especially, liked to attend auction sales and many valuable items were acquired in this way.

In addition to the furnishings distributed throughout the rooms of the two-storey house, there were hundreds of items stored in the large attic. The Wyatt family saved everything, including books, papers, letters, and clothing. Most of the textual materials have been removed to the MacNaught History Centre and Archives for storage and description.

On display on the walls and shelves in the house are unique paintings and ceramics and the hardwood floors are covered with lovely rugs and hooked mats. Many souvenirs of world travels are also to be seen.
