Wellington’s Main Street is the Loyalist Parkway that dates back to 1799. This street once bustled with hotels and taverns and horse-drawn wagons. From the community museum located in the only remaining Quaker Meeting House in Prince Edward County, to the fine old architecture including one of the oldest homes in Ontario dated back to 1786, Wellington wears its history with pride. Today, along with wonderful heritage, Wellington has a lot to offer.
