Wellington Heritage Museum

Wellington Heritage Museum is located in the heart of the village of Wellington. It was built in 1885 as a Quaker Meeting House and now features exhibits on local history. Highlights include a tribute to the Quakers or “Society of Friends” who played a notable role in the County’s development. In addition, the Douglas A. Crawford Canning Industry Collection conveys the importance of that industry in Prince Edward County. There were over 75 different canning factories operating herebetween 1882 and 1996.
