The Crystal Palace

Located in the Fair Grounds on Main Street, Picton, Ont.
This building, built in 1887, is a scaled down version of Joseph Paxton's Crystal Palace built in 1851 for the Great Exhibition in London, England. Built of timber, instead of iron like the original, it hearkens back to the "Days of the Empire". Many copies were constructed following the Great Exhibition but this is possibly the only one to have survived in North America.
