The Village of Ameliasburgh was named after Princess Amelia, the 15th child of King George III. This hamlet nestles on Roblin Lake, and was supported by a grist and flour mill, which drew the lake’s water to the mill located in what is now the Harry J. Smith Conservation Area. The Conservation Area is a delight for anyone with an eye for beauty, and a delightful spot for your picnic. Be sure to visit the Ameliasburgh Museum & Pioneer Village housed in a former Methodist church built in 1868. Opposite the museum is a newer building belonging to the Seventh Town Historical Society. The local library is housed in an old schoolhouse built in 1870.
