  • History | Town of Kensington
    from boulders left behind during the last ice age Early in the century the station was recognized as an attraction to the area and continues to be so The Railway Station officially closed in 1983 In recognizing the richness of the station and the possibilities that existed efforts were made to preserve the station The waiting room of the station was converted into the Kensington Tourist Information Center in 1984 It also housed the Veteran s Military Museum for some time and in 1991 became home to the Kensington Farmers Market which has since moved to the railway freight shed Until late in 2008 the Railway Station served as a museum for the Kensington Heritage Association and the PEI Railway Heritage Association to display their artifacts and other historic memorobilia A restaurant and pub is currently housed at the station In the early days Kensington had at least two hotels which included barns or livery stables to accommodate the horses of the travelling public Among the first businesses in Kensington was Schurmans a building materials and construction firm which began in 1896 Their first contract was for the Church in Margate in 1898 Since that time the company has expanded greatly and is now known as Kent Building Supplies The Kennedy store was another large business in those early days located on the southeast corner of the main intersection in Town The Bank of New Brunswick was the first Bank to set up in Kensington in the year 1906 In 1913 it amalgamated with the Bank of Nova Scotia Mr Layton Rogers was the first Bank Manager Kensington first received electricity in 1917 from a plant in Mill Valley run by Mr Bannerman Tanton A sewage collection system was installed in 1958 Kensington being at the centre of the agricultural district was the natural location for many potato dealers and two or three decades ago had a flourishing potato buying and shipping industry A school is the central spot in any Community Kensington s first school in 1847 was located at the fork between the roads leading from Irishtown and Margate John McLauchien was the first teacher The second school built in 1880 was a four room building which was later divided into two houses In 1903 a new school was built that became an Elementary School when the High School was constructed on the Margate Road in 1963 The first Library in Kensington began in 1934 with a grant from the Carnegie Corporation in a room in the old Town Hall The first Librarian was Mrs Townsend who served in this capacity until ill health forced her to resign in 1962 The library is now housed in the Town Hall located on Victoria Street East Recreation has always been an important part of the community There have been numerous rinks constructed over the years in Kensington The present Community Gardens was built after the fire in 1977 destroyed its predecessor To mark Canada s centennial in 1973 the Kensington
