The tour begins at Macaulay Heritage Park in Picton.
Reverend Wm. Macaulay is credited with giving Picton its name. Alongside a costumed guide, walk through the grounds of his pleasant estate and the neigbouring graveyard at his historic church, the former St. Mary
Magdalene (now a museum).
The tour will make its way to the nearby courthouse. Explore the exercise yards, the jail cells and gallows
where two local men infamously were hanged in 1884. Some still say they were innocent.
