“Steeped in history and rich in natural features, this Conservation Area, located atop a 20 metre high limestone bluff, commands a panoramic view of Prince Edward Bay and the rugged shoreline of this southern reach of the county. Take the pathway to the cobblestone beach below and view the high bluff from a different perspective. There are 1.5 km of trails at this 28 hectare (70 acre) site. This quiet shoreline is actually a barrier beach, effectively protecting a small wetland from the windswept waters of Prince Edward Bay. Here, Canada geese, mallards, great blue herons, bitterns and Virginia rails find the protected habitat they require. A Little History This area contains the remains of a grain storage and docking facility where schooners once loaded barley destined for Oswego. During the 1860s to 1890s, all of Prince Edward County reveled in the wealth realized from the prosperous “Barley Days.””

“Rose House has survived since the early 1800s with few alterations, inhabited by 5 generations of the Rose family. Peter Rose arrived in Prince Edward County among the first Marysburgh settlers, made up largely of United Empire Loyalists and Hessian (German) soldiers who had fought for the British in the American Revolution. According to tradition, Rose House is constructed from salvaged timber from the community’s original Lutheran Church. Peter and his wife, Christina Bongard, raised 11 children in this modest farmhouse. Admission by donation.”
