Picton is an unincorporated community located in Prince Edward County in southern Central Ontario, Canada. It is the County’s largest community and former seat. Picton is located at the south-western end of Picton Bay, a branch of the Bay of Quinte, which is along the northern shoreline of Lake Ontario.  Named for General Sir Thomas Picton, Wellington’s second-in-command at the Battle of Waterloo, the Town of Picton has a profound and rich history. It was here that Sir John A. MacDonald managed a law office for his uncle, Lowther P. MacPherson. Picton is also located in one of Ontario’s most beautiful areas of forests, lodging, camping, wine making and vacation spots. The tourism industry is a primary source of revenue for many area residents, especially in the summer. Historic downtown Picton offers a wide array of shops and services.  The historic Crystal Palace, (circa 1890) is one of the last remaining replicas of the original Crystal Palace, UK.  Prince Edward County is a largely agricultural area. As such dairying and meat, fruit and vegetable processing and storage are relatively common. In recent years, many artisans and artists have moved to the area and opened studios. In many of the local stores you can purchase local art and hand-crafted products. These products are beginning to play a more serious role in the local economy.

In addition, there has been a proliferation of small wineries in the southern half of the county. Properties listed for sale, especially defunct farms with the right kind of exposure, are often described as ideal locations for new wineries allowing a markup of their property values. Now with an official VQA designation, what role the area will play in the larger Ontario wine industry in the near future remains to be seen.

Picton is also home to Canada’s largest premier kayak manufacturer, ClearWater Design.

The Academy Award-winning film, The English Patient, has a character from Picton.
