The gem of Waupoos, Rose House has survived since the early 1800s with few alterations, inhabited by several generations of the Rose family. Peter Rose arrived in Prince Edward County among first Marysburgh settlers, made up largely of United Empire Loyalists and Hessian (German) soldiers who had fought for the British in the American Revolution. According to tradition, Rose House is constructed from salvaged timber from the community’s original Lutheran Church. Peter and his wife, Christiana Bongard, raised a large family in this modest farmhouse. Rose House Museum welcomes: Bus Tours School Visits Volunteers If booked in advance, the museum can also provide tours of the nearby Rose Cemetery for groups.

Beachcomb on the long pebble beach for driftwood and fossils, swim off the big flat limestone ledges, it’s a quiet beautiful place for a picnic – but remember to leave only footprints behind! An excellent place to watch a sunset. During spring and fall migration, it is one of the finest birding areas in Canada. Point Petre is an important stopover for mallard, black duck, blue- and green-winged teal, wood duck, hooded merganser, lesser and greater scaup, bufflehead and common merganser. See birding info. Favourite hangout from Rick Mayhew and Gerry Foster ☞ Point Petre, the point of Petre. Local tips: There are no signs to the water. Walk or drive down one of the lanes that lines the main road and at the end is the shore. Not all of the lanes are suitable for cars. Bring a picnic lunch and drinks (and a lawnchair), as there are no restaurants nearby. If you get there early in the a.m., walk across the road to see the bird banding (in season). The currents can be dangerous, there are sometimes undertows. Be careful. Bring a bag to collect your garbage, there are no waste disposal bins. The name is pronounced “Peter”, not “Petree”. […]

Click on image to see enlarged version of map The Picton Recreation Committee and the Picton BIA worked together to design a set of three walking circles in Picton with lengths of 5, 3, and 1 kms. The longest route includes slightly more than 2 km of Millennium Trail, as well as walk through the downtown area. The 3 km route also takes you through downtown Picton, and then through an older residential section of town. The shortest route is a leisurely 1 km “Walk in the Park”. All routes start and end in the centre of town at the Mary Street Parking Lot where you will find a large sign version of our map and a very inviting bench for your comfort at the end of your journey. Please consider the stretches illustrated before and after walking – give them a try to limber up and cool down.
