The Hamlet of Ameliasburgh
Our Village 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 housed in a former
Methodist church built in 1868. Opposite the museum is a new building
belonging to the Seventh Town Historical Society, which houses the Quinte
Branch of the Ontario Genealogical Society. The local library is housed in an old schoolhouse
built in 1870.
