Gamester Homestead

     I've been noticing this place the past few years, first the lawns weren't cut then a window was broken and last winter a curtain waved in the wind all winter.
     This was the home of Lemuel and Janie (MacKinnon) Gamester, located on the Bungay Road (Rte. 251) in Hunter River.
     Cumins 1928 Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows Geo. Gamester living here with 97-acres of land (in two parcels of land) - it notes his wife Janie and their children, Guy, Arthur, Viola and Lemuel.
     Meachams 1880 Atlas of Prince Edward Island shows these two parcels of land belonging to Jno. Hickox and Pat Hughes.
      The house is an Island-ell style farmhouse.
