3 Ole King Square, Charlottetown

     I lived at 3 Ole King Square for 5 years in the late 1980's.   This old 3-storey, flat roof house was divided in to six apartments sometime in the mid-twentieth century.  My apartment was on main floor, on the corner of  Old King Square and Hillsborough Street.  
     I have never known, or could ever find out, who owned this large old house. 
     Here are a few photos of my photos of 3 Ole King Square taken in December 1988.

 Below:  The Kitchen cabinetry was built around the large cast iron sink
     According to the City of Charlottetown's website and their page about this house - it's listed as being built prior to 1878 as it appears in this 1878 Panoramic view below.  See: http://www.city.charlottetown.pe.ca/searchaproperty.php?propid=1970
