Established in the early 1800′s, Consecon is considered the Gateway to the County (Prince Edward) and is located between Consecon Lake to the east, Wellers Bay to the west, and Loyalist Parkway, (Highway 33) bisecting it. The old grist mill overlooks the dam and the millpond runs through the centre of the village connecting Consecon Lake to Wellers Bay.
“Consecon” is derived from the Indian word “Knan Nokjarm” which means an opening, and “con con” which means pickerel.
Champlain slept here in the 1600′s and there is a cairn to commemorate that event. It was in the immediate area of an Iroquois village and Kente Mission which ultimately gave its name to the entire region – “Quinte”.
