The building that currently houses the Alberton Museum, located at 457 Church Street, Alberton, P.E.I, was originally the Alberton Courthouse. Following the passage of the Prince Edward Island County Courts Act in 1873, six circuit courthouses were built around the province. The Alberton Courthouse was built in 1878 by the company of James Wiggins & Sons. This building served in the capacity of a courthouse until court services were moved to the former Fielding School, located on Dufferin Street, in 1978.
