The City of Charlottetown recently installed a plaque to recognize the former home of Don Messer for his contribution and presence in the community.
Don Messer and His Islanders became the most popular television show on the CBC next to Hockey Night In Canada. Messer was born in New Brunswick but moved to Prince Edward Island in 1939 to work in radio.
The home at 15 Belmont Street was originally constructed in 1950. Don Messer purchased this home in 1960 and lived there for several years. The Don Messer House is currently owned by Melvin and Debbie Ramsay.
