The Crystal Palace is located in the Fair Grounds on Main Street, Picton. This building was built in 1887 as a scaled down version of Joseph Paxton’s Crystal Palace built in 1851 in London, England. This could be the only one left in North America, but they used to be commonly found in cities around the world.  The building has been lovingly maintained and it is symbolic of the rich history of Prince Edward County itself.
