The Georgina Historical Society, as a not-for-profit organization, collects, preserves, promotes and interprets the rich history and heritage of all communities now known as the Town of Georgina.

The Georgina Historical Society in following its mandate to preserve, protect and promote history has undertaken to restore and refurbish the old 1912 CN caboose that has set neglected at the Pioneer Village for over 25 years. To help provide funds for this project the Historical Society has produced their first print run of our 2021 calendar, “Landmarks of Georgina”. It features local landmarks such as Christ Church, Mossington Bridge, Sutton Mill, Pefferlaw Dam, Baldwin Grist Mill, Elmgrove School, St James Anglican Hall, Red Barn Silo and more.  It sold out quickly and we have arranged for a second printing to meet demand.  It is a unique and wonderful Christmas gift for family, friends and old neighbours for just $15.00.

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.
