Located along the southern shore of the Bay of Quinte and east of the town of Picton in Prince Edward County sits the tiny community of Glenora. Best known for the free ferry service linking Glenora and Adolphustown via the Loyalist Parkway Glenora was once well known for the mills and ship-building that took place along the shore.
Major Peter Van Alstine received a grant of 437 acres on June 4th 1796 and built a flour and carding mill along the edge of a cliff at Glenora. The Major would also build a home for himself and one for his miller.
Lake on the Mountain Provincial Park is also located close by. The lake is perched 62 metres (203 ft) above the Bay of Quinte, separated by a small strip of land ending in a cliff.
