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.

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.
