About

The Tryon & Area Historical Society Inc. was officially incorporated on Feb. 28, 2008. The purpose of the Society is to collect, preserve, and promote the history of the community. The Society is an Institutional Member of the Community Museums Association of PEI (CMA/PEI).

In the past few years the Society has identified and listed a large amount of community resources consisting of people, information , and artifacts.  Interpretation of our heritage takes place in historical presentations, talks, tours, recitals, and various displays. Members of the Society also conduct tours at the Tryon Museum. An important collection owned by the Society is the Millie Gamble Photograph Collection which depicts early life in the community. The collection is displayed at the Tryon Baptist Church.

We enjoy a great relationship with other local associations: South Shore United Church, Tryon Baptist Church, Tryon Peoples’ Cemetery, and Tryon River Watershed Cooperative.

Since Marshlands are some of the oldest “living artefacts” found within our community, we have selected a scene from the Tryon River Trail as a header for our web site.

Information about TAHS, the museum, or related organizations can be obtained by contacting Jack Sorensen, Chair TAHS. jacksorensen@pei.sympatico.ca, or call 1-902-658-2009, or visit website www.reallyohandcrafts.com

      Sorry I missed you when you visited Tryon …. I led the charge in erecting the Grave Marker for our Hudson/Barker grandparents …. who landed on June 3rd , 1817 …. 200 years ago in Charlottetown , on the Valiant out of Hull . Single at the time , they married on September 3rd of that year and lived in Tryon . The rest is History , and we are a part of it !

        Thanks Paul. I shared your post with my west coast relatives. My parents Richard and Joann Hudson enjoyed attending a reunion years ago on PEI. Perhaps more of us will have a chance to visit our founding ancestors resting place. Appreciate your part in keeping history alive. Mike Hudson (Bend, Oregon)

    I recently brought my wife and children to the Tryon People’s Cemetery. My uncle had told us that there were a few Robblee graves that were worth seeing. What a gorgeous area. I was looking through the available genealogical records online and it appears that many of my ancestors lived in the Tryon area. Fascinating. I wish we’d had more time to explore.
