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.
