The second town of importance on the Island, is situated in township No. 17, parish of Richmond, county of Prince. It is a seaport town, has a good harbour, being the third best on the Island, though the channel is crooked and narrow - and has a large export trade. Shipbuilding is also carried on to a considerable extent. During the past year there were shipped from this port 268,000 bushels of oats, 37,303 bushels of potatoes, 19,300 bushels of barley, 86,450 dozens of eggs, 182 horses, 2,267 sheep, and 4,337 barrels of oysters.

During the season of navigation there is a steam boat communication with Charlottetown and Shediac, N.B. Mail stages run daily to Charlottetown, and bi-weekly to Alberton. Two weekly newspapers are issued in Summerside.
