Trenton, located on the Northumberland coast in Pictou County, rests on the scenic shores of the East River. Trenton is a historical little town, home to the first pouring of steel in British North America. Trenton, founded in 1786 and incorporated in 1911, is close in proximity to New Glasgow, making it an industrial centre. Trenton is considered the birthplace of the steel industry in Canada, and the town motto reads "Strike While the Iron's Hot." Significant economic turmoil in Trenton has caused many businesses and schools to close down.

Trenton is home to the Trenton Park Fishing Ponds, the Sports Heritage Hall of Fame, and Powells Point, which is located on the scenic shoreline, both rocky and sandy. Eastern Air Services offers air adventure tours for those interested in a panoramic, aerial view of the wonderful Trenton area.
