title Drama at Abells Cape
creator Townshend, Adele
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Abells Cape, situated on the south side of the Fortune River, has seen more than its share of adventure, and tragedy. Captain Kidd is said to have buried his treasure in its high sandstone cliff, a wounded man made his death-bed will there, ghosts haunt its dark woods, and famous actors claimed it as their summer haven long ago. The appearance of the Cape has changed little over the centuries. Dense spruce forest still crowds to the edge of the cliff, spreads around an old sundial erected to American actor Charles P. Flockton, and down over the whole Cape, screening the cottages of the present owners.
