The Fanning school (at left- 1949; at right- 1960). Edmund Fanning, the Lt. Governor of Prince Edward Island in the 1790s, often made summer visits to the Malpeque area and was interested in the advancement of education on the Island. Because of Edmund Fanning's stature and interest, the new school opened in Malpeque in 1794 was named in honor of him. As early as 1815, newspaper reports indicate that children from Charlottetown were being sent to the area to attend the Fanning School. (Garnett Turner)
