The Prince Edward County Archives is in Wellington, having moved from the old County Courthouse in Picton in 2008.  Visit also the website of the active Prince Edward Historical Society.

Documents from the archives below have been transcribed with permission from the archivist at the time. Thanks to Pam Noxon and the many other volunteers for their help and support.
