Former St. Anne's Parochial House moved today in Emyvale

     I just heard on CBC Radio's Mainstreet program that the former Parochial House at St. Anne's Parish in Emyvale was moved today.  It was bought by Jean-Serge Gagnon of Fredericton, N.B. and his wife.  The house was moved 1km to their new lot on the Kingston Road.  
     Buildings cannot be moved on Prince Edward Island during the months of July and August due to the extra tourism traffic.  The weather was too wet to move the house earlier this month - they got it moved just in time!
     The 13-room house was built in 1907, designed by well-known Island Architect William C. Harris.  Below are photos from CBC Radio P.E.I. website.  The rear kitchen wing to the house was built sometime in the 1950's according to the new owner.
