The largest ward in The County and home to the villages of Consecon, Carrying Place, Rednersville, Rossmore and the village of Ameliasburgh – Ameliasburgh is named after Princess Amelia, the 15th child of King George III. It meets the Bay of Quinte to the north, cradles Consecon Lake to the south and encompasses Roblin Lake – a thriving hub in the 1800s thanks to a grist and flour mill that now lives at Black Creek Pioneer Village. As the first stop for anyone traveling from the west, you’ll cross the Murray Canal, an 8km waterway that disconnected The County from main-land Ontario in 1889. Ameliasburgh can also be reached via the Bay Bridge from Belleville. The area has no shortage of maple trees, studios and galleries, island shoreline, and historic significance to explore.
