Upper Prince Street is located on the east side of Charlottetown in what is referred to as the Charlottetown Common. The original name of the street was Haviland’s Lane due to the fact that Thomas Heath Haviland and his family owned the area from the early 1800s. After 1870 the land began to be subdivided and a number of attractive homes were constructed.
In the following exhibit, we explore the history of Upper Prince Street and the people that lived there.
