5 Ways to Experience Belleville’s History

Bird's Eye View of Belleville 1874

1. East Hill Walk

Many of the houses the Loyalists and their descendants built are located in East Hill, a short walk from downtown. Stop by Corby Rose Garden which features 2,000 roses, perennial and annual flowers and a lovely fountain.

2. Soak Up History at Signal Brewing Company

The Corby Distillery property was left abandoned for almost 25 years until Signal Brewing Company began restoring the buildings. The brewery is a must-stop attraction for beer made with love, thought and passion and food perfect for sharing!

3. Stroll Along the River

Stroll along the historic Moira River on the Parrott Riverfront Trail, starting from Dundas St. heading north to Memorial Park. Pick up a Trail Map at Belleville’s Visitors Centre or on the 3rd floor of City Hall.

4. Tour Glanmore

There is so much to see and do at this Second Empire gem and National Historic Site! Artifacts related to local history are included as part of the restored rooms of the historic house as well as displays in the lower level. Book a tour online today!
