Support Georgina Historical Society

Georgina is a rural and urban community situated on the southern shores of Lake Simcoe. Created in 1971 with the merger of Georgina and North Gwillimbury Townships into a single municipality, it can trace its history back into the early pioneer
times of Upper Canada.

Our Society is dedicated to the collection, preservation, and promotion of this heritage. Please support us.

We Need Your Help!

Our picture in the GHS calendar for the month of March, the last images of this building in our newsletter showed its demolition.  We are happy to announce that the adaptive reconstruction is almost complete and that the new schoolhouse is expected to be open to the public once the Georgina Pioneer Village resumes operations again this June.  What is wanted for the opening is images of its interior back in the day (if possible) and class pictures (there’s only six in the archives and they’re either poor quality or copies).  Also, a bit more historical information on the schoolhouse would be nice.  If you can help us, please contact Melissa Matt at the Village (905-476-4301 ext. 2284), Tom Glover, or Bob Holden.
