History of Rural Municipality of Hazelbrook

History

Towards the end of the 18th century, settlers from England and Scotland came to Pownal Bay and inhabited the area known as Lot 48 or Wadman’s Creek, which is now known as Hazelbrook. The settlers built a road which was improved by the government between 1840 and 1850 and was further upgraded in 1924. In 1956 the Trans Canada Highway was built through the middle of Hazelbrook, essentially dividing the Community in half. The CNR railroad was built in 1904 to connect Murray Harbour to Charlottetown. It operated through the Community for roughly 50 years until it was abandoned.

A church, school and local store were also built in the early 1900’s. With the influence of the growing population centre in Charlottetown the store and the school were closed. The Hazelbrook Baptist Church was unfortunately demolished in 2007 due to physical deterioration which made the building unuseable.

Recent History and Development

Hazelbrook started out as a farming community and largely remains so today. While the number of true full time farmers has declined both locally and across Prince Edward Island, Hazelbrook still remains primarily a farming community. Hazelbrook was incorporated as a municipality in 1974.
