Wellington, Prince Edward, Ontario, Canada

One of Prince Edward County's earliest residents, Daniel Reynolds, first came to the area in the 18th century and settled in Wellington where his house remains today along Main Street. Reynolds was nicknamed Old Smoke by local First Nations, hence the community was first known as Smokeville. When a post office was established in the 1830s, the village was renamed Wellington after the Duke of Wellington.
