Jean Pierre Roma National Historic Site of Canada

 Jean Pierre Roma, a visionary French businessman, sailed three boats to the future Roma Site in June 1732. Roma and his men set to work and within a few years his crew had cleared 200 acres and had constructed nine buildings as part of Roma's plan … an international trade centre.

Roma's boats transported dried cod, trade goods and alcohol along a network between France, the West Indies, Fortress Louisbourg and Quebec. And Roma's crew constructed many of PEI's first roads connecting his Site with St Peters Bay and Port La Joye and many other locations.

Roma's Site lasted only 13 years when in July 1745 it was burned to the ground by British Privateers.

276 years have passed since the burning and sacking of Roma's Settlement in 1745. In recognation of this sad event, the Great Escape of 1745 Festival will be held on **July 31, August 7 &14.  Additionally on **July 31st the Three Rivers Arts and Cultural Festival will  be staged at the Roma Site.
