Carrying Place is a community that serves as the gateway to Prince Edward County. Situated just south of Trenton, it was named for its location on the portage between the Bay of Quinte and Weller’s Bay on Lake Ontario. The Loyalist Parkway passes through the community. Carrying Place is home to the Department of National Defence’s LPH-89 antenna farm attached to CFB Trenton and located along Loyalist Parkway south of Twelve O’clock Point. Of considerable historical importance, Carrying Place or the Portage was thought to have a better future than Toronto when water transport was the principal means of travel. Situated on the narrow neck of land separating the western terminus of the Bay of Quinte from Weller’s Bay on Lake Ontario, it was a thriving community in the 1800′s. Both ends of the old portage route were well-developed to accommodate the needs of the tired traveler. Used for centuries by the Indians, Champlain rested here in 1615. A stone cairn commemorates the signing of the Gunshot Treaty of 1787. (It was by this treaty that the Mississauga Indians relinquished to the Crown all of their lands stretching from the Bay of Quinte westerly to the Etobicoke River, including the City […]

History The community of Black River was first surveyed in 1874 for settlement by refugees from the American Revolutionary War. Currently, it has a year-round population of about 250 which more than doubles during the summer. Residents are a friendly mix of farming families who have been here for many generations and new arrivals. Black River is home to many food producers (maple syrup, honey, eggs, pastured pork, goat and lamb, and a wide variety of organic vegetables), various accommodation providers (bed and breakfasts, and cottage rentals), artists, artisans, antiques and crafts shops, and Black River Cheese. Black River was a booming community that first peaked in the 1860s and 70s. It had wharves where schooners were built and where storehouses kept grain and fruit for shipment to Toronto, Kingston and Oswego, and stocked manufactured goods for local residents.
