Plaques throughout the region mark the course of Loyalist settlement following the American Revolution. Prince Edward County is the second-largest area with Loyalist architecture, with plaques from the hamlets of Carrying Place to Glenora. It includes structures like the County Court House (Union Street in Picton), where Canada’s first prime minister Sir John A. MacDonald practiced law. There are 400 archaelogical sites and 125 heritage buildings connected to the Parkway, all vital aspects of Canadian history. Maps of the Parkway can be picked up at Prince Edward County’s Chamber of Tourism and Commerce (116 Main St., Picton, 1-800-640-4717).
