Description

Are we there yet? Are we there yet?

We’re going on a road trip!!

Join your friends at Trent Valley Archives for a bus trip to the United Empire Loyalist Centre in Adolphustown on the beautiful Bay of Quinte!

We plan ahead here at the Archives, so we’re giving you plenty of notice about this trip with the opportunity for early birds and Christmas shoppers to save some money. We’ve booked the bus and made all the arrangements for Thursday, September 13, 2018!

The day bus trip will leave Peterborough for the UEL Centre in Adolphustown - near Napanee. Our morning will include a tour of the museum and grounds, a talk on the significance of the United Empire Loyalists in Canada from their time before the start of the American Revolution and their settlements in various parts of Canada, and an opportunity to research your UEL ancestors, with help from volunteers at the centre.

That will be followed by a scenic ride on the Glenora Ferry to the Inn on the Lake on the Mountain and a choice of lunch offerings. The Inn is located in an historic general store, circa 1796, on the shore of the lake, a natural curiosity with a constant flow of clean, fresh water, with no apparent source! It is 60 metres above Lake Ontario with views of the Bay of Quinte, the Glenora Ferry and the north shore.

Then the bus, a Canada Coach highway vehicle with a washroom, will return home through Picton and Highway 401.

Our early bird price, good until December 31, is $50 per person. The cost of lunch is not included. After December 31 the price is $60. The UEL centre is not wheelchair accessible.

We are excited at TVA about this road trip! It’s something new for us, and something we thought our members and supporters would enjoy.
