Amherst Island's Dry Stone Walls

The dry stone walls located on Amherst Island are a unique feature to Loyalist Township. It is one of the only areas in Canada with such a significant concentration of historical dry stone walls. The walls were built as both a place to move the stones unearthed from the fields during ploughing and to create enclosures for livestock.
