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.

BTHS is now on Twitter! Follow us:   HistoricalSociety@BTHS

  RAIN or SHINE, the STRAWBERRY SOCIAL goes ahead.  Please still come to see us.  We  will be inside instead of under the maple trees.  It’s raining in Harley at 7:30 am — and stopped by 7:50, so  maybe it  will clear by this afternoon?

BE SURE to COME  to our STRAWBERRY SOCIAL.   We will be back to having the social on a Sunday — June 18th.  Once again we will have Brian Stefan and DIVERSITY,  an old-time fiddlin’ group.  Fiddles and whatever other instruments his friends show up with.  You will be sure to enjoy them. Music from 2pm to 3pm; strawberries and wandering around the museum from 3pm to …..

Bring your lawnchairs – let’s hope there is no rain (yes, I know we need the rain for the crops.)


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 hope to set up a more organized schedule as we move forward. 

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