Sir Andrew Macphail Homestead
271 Macphail Park Road, Orwell, PE  C0A 2E0

The Macphail family lived in this Homestead from 1864-1961. Our tour guide will tell you stories of the 10 children raised here by their stern Scottish father known as "The Master". One of them, Sir Andrew Macphail, was later the first professor of Medical History at McGill University. He also wrote 10 novels, including "The Master's Wife", a book about his childhood here. Onsite, The Veranda Café serves traditional meals with ingredients from our gardens.
