Century 21 Colonial's Old Homes Week

15 Breakwater Street, Souris

AKA: Matthew House Inn

Old home week marks a special time when friends and family reunite on the island to recount old memories and make new ones. Just like the memories families make together, so do the homes they once lived in. This week we will be showcasing five historical homes as part of our Old Homes Week, highlighting interesting points of these prominent homes in Prince Edward Island. 

Today we feature the Matthew House Inn, located at 15 Breakwater Street along the Souris waterfront. The property is a landmark in the town of Souris, decorated in fine architectural accents that are popular with the Queen Anne Revival style. The building was built for Uriah Matthew by William Richard Dingwell around 1885. Matthew was known for the Matthew & MacLean merchant firm in the town of Souris.
