Glanmore National Historic Site

257 Bridge St E, Belleville
A visit to Glanmore feels just like you’ve hopped in a time machine and travelled back to the late 1800s. The former residence was constructed in 1883, designated a National Historic Site in 1969 and opened as a museum in 1974. The building’s Second Empire architecture has a distinct appearance with a mansard roof and cast iron cresting and inside it’s full of art, furniture, clothing and artifacts from that time period. glanmore.ca

Roller Skating at Disco Ball Events

170 York St, Greater Napanee
A true retro experience awaits at the region’s only indoor roller rink. Lace-up some old-fashioned roller skates and dance around to upbeat music under the colourful lights and, of course, the sparkle of a disco ball. Talk about a blast from the past!
