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.
The July meeting will be Tuesday, July 25th. As long as it isn’t raining, we will meet at the Congregational Cemetery on Maple Ave at 6:30 for a cemetery walk. See who is buried there – discuss the history. Everyone welcome.
BTHS is now on Twitter! Follow us: HistoricalSociety@BTHS
RAIN and SHINE, the STRAWBERRY SOCIAL went ahead. We were able to listen to DIVERSITY under the maple trees, and have our strawberries and ice cream. Then at 3:30, the heavens opened, and it poured! The strawberries were incredibly delicious – our thanks to Josh Miller at Berry Pak.
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
