Welcome to the Burford Township Historical Society.  We have produced a cookbook for sale  — read the great memories,  and in case you were wondering — all  of the pictures in the cookbook are from Burford Township.

  2018:   the STRAWBERRY SOCIAL  is planned again for this year.   DIVERSITY, our local trio, will be back under the maple tree.  Then, hang around and  have  strawberries and ice cream. Step into the museum to see what is new.  It will be SATURDAY, June 16th, from 1:30 to 3:30.   Don’t forget to bring your lawn chair.    

We are expecting to be open again during the summer.  Dates are not yet firmed up, but we will work toward being open on the weekend.  Check back again after our next meeting:  June 26th 

Gary Jermy, who was with us as an archivist, is now working at the Brant County library.    Check out Brant.ca site for the archives and photos that he loaded.


Thank you for visiting the official website. The historical society was formed in 1986, and is an affiliate member of the Ontario Historical Society and the Ontario Museums Association

BTHS is an agricultural museum.  Over the years the residents of Burford Township have gathered up and donated artefacts to the museum.    Slowly we are bringing artefacts back onto public view.  We have the data base programme from the Ontario Museums Association, and will be creating a searchable database for visitors.  However, this may take a while to complete —  a long while…..

The museum has only volunteers – we have no paid staff.  Currently we are open by chance, or by contacting a member.  

We are now listed on the Ontario Museums Association site: museumsontario.ca
