Roma at Three Rivers is a National Historic Site on Prince Edward Island
The Jean Pierre Roma National Historic Site depicts the life and times of the settlement established in 1732 by Jean Pierre Roma, a Frenchman who carved from the
virgin forest a trading post he called Trois Rivières.
Today, through experiencing heritage programs, we share with our visitors how the people in the settlement lived from day to day, the foods they ate and the foods they
didn't eat, how cod was fished to feed Europe, the toys played with by children before they went to work at the age of 7 and  the fact that Jean Pierre Roma and his indentured servants built many of PEI's first roads ... and more!

Roma acknowledges the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage
While adding an expanded focus on the British colonial period, "Saluting Our Pioneers" will continue to celebrate the pioneer experinces of the Jean Pierre Roma settlers as done in past years by including bread baking, quill pen writing, music, dance & song, tree stumping & demonstrating a two-man saw; presentations on the cod fishery and everyday life in the 1730s, the Heritage Garden Tour and our speciality "Chocolate; the food of the gods."

 Roma's Heritage lunch will be served daily during the Festival.
