About Trenton

Trenton, Ontario

 

 

 

 

 

Trenton (2001 population 19,374) is a community in Southern Ontario in the municipality ofQuinte West, Ontario, Canada. Located on the Bay of Quinte, it is the main population centre in Quinte West.

Trenton is the starting point for the Trent-Severn Waterway, which continues northwest toPeterborough and eventually Port Severn on Georgian Bay.

History 

 

 

 

 

The Trent River was known to the Mississauga as Sangichiwigewonk, or 'fast flowing.' It was named after the River Trent in England.

French explorer Samuel de Champlain followed the Trent Severn passing through Trenton in 1615. The area around the mouth of the Trent River was first settled by Europeans in the 1780s. Assorted settlements and town plots in the area went under a number of names, until the Village of Trenton was incorporated in 1853. Trenton grew thanks to its port location and area lumber industry. During the First World War, the town was home to a major munitions plant owned by the British Chemical Company. This facility was built in 1915 to manufacture artillery, rifle, and small arms ammunition. Three weeks before the Armistice, an explosion levelled the plant. Remains of the old plant can still be found today.

Trenton was also an important film production centre. In 1917, a film studio was built in the town and a number of productions were filmed there. In 1923, the Trenton Film Plant was purchased by the Ontario government to house the studio and laboratory of the Ontario Motion Picture Bureau. The advent of talkies and 16mm film made the equipment at the film plant obsolete and the facility closed in 1934.

The construction of a RCAF Station Trenton, a major Royal Canadian Air Force base just east of Trenton started in 1929 and continued through the 1930s. This provided a major economic boost to the area through the Great Depression, the Second World War and later.

Trenton was incorporated as a city in 1980. On January 1, 1998, Trenton was amalgamated with the Village of Frankford and the Townships ofMurray and Sidney to form Quinte West. Home to nearly half the population of Quinte West, Trenton is the largest community within the municipality.

 

 

 

 

 

Recreation & Culture

 

 

 

 

Trenton is located on the Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail. Surrounding Trenton, there are numerous conservation areas, a state of the art YMCA, campsites, picnic grounds, and marinas. The area boasts nine golf courses, three ice hockey rinks, numerous soccer fields, bowling, many kilometres of walking trails, a dog parkcurling rinks, baseball diamonds, amongst many other recreational activities. Trenton also serves as a gateway to Prince Edward County, located just to the south of the Bay of Quinte. This area is becoming increasingly well known for its many vineyards, excellent camping, beaches and boating.

Trenton is the site of the National Air Force Museum of Canada. It features an original RAF Halifax Bomber, the 75th RCAF time capsule, a Lockheed CC-130E Hercules, and many other aircraft and exhibits.

Every summer CFB Trenton also is home to over one thousand Royal Canadian Air Cadets who attend 2-week Familiarization Courses, 3-week Introductory Specialty Courses, and 6-week Advanced Specialty Courses, and has special staff positions for more senior cadets. These summer courses introduce the cadets to a military learning environment that promotes discipline, teamwork, and fun. Most camps here also go on trips to the airport, the Air Museum, and other relevant places.

Trenton is a hot spot for sport fishing. Popular freshwater fish in the Bay of Quinte and the Trent River include walleye (pickerel), bass, pike, perch, and mudcat. During particular times of the year, salmon and rainbow trout can be caught in the Trent River and in cold water streams in the area. Each year in May, the Kiwanis Club of Trenton holds the Annual Live Release Fishing Derby attracting thousands of sport fishermen from around North America with major prizes for tagged fish and heaviest weighed walleye and Northern pike.

In 1990, Canadian poet Al Purdy (who received the Order of Canada and the Governor General´s award) published his only novel A Splinter In The Heart. It takes place entirely in Trenton and provides a nice historical look of the town. It mentions many of the landmarks in the city (Mount Pelion, The Bridges, Trent River, etc.) and documents the period of the town directly before and after the huge munitions plant explosion of 1918. Purdy also wrote a poem entitled "At the Quinte Hotel" about the strip club in Trenton called The Sherwood Forest Inn.
