Province House is a historic building located in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. Completed in 1847, it is the seat of the Prince Edward Island Legislative Assembly and is recognized as the birthplace of Confederation, as it hosted the Charlottetown Conference in 1864, which laid the foundation for the creation of Canada as a nation.

Designed by architect Isaac Smith, Province House is a fine example of neoclassical architecture, featuring a symmetrical facade, grand columns, and a central pediment. The building's interior is equally impressive, with ornate woodwork, marble floors, and a magnificent legislative chamber where debates and discussions take place.

Today, Province House is open to the public for guided tours, allowing visitors to explore its historic rooms and learn about the significant events that have taken place within its walls. The building also houses a visitor center, where exhibits and displays provide further insights into the history of Prince Edward Island and its role in the formation of Canada.

As one of the oldest legislative buildings in Canada still in use, the Province House holds a special place in Canadian history and heritage. It continues to serve as a symbol of democracy and governance, while also welcoming visitors to experience its rich architectural and historical legacy.
