Why join?

Are you interested in history? Are you fascinated by how people lived and worked in the past? Does the preservation of our past matter to you? When you become a member of the Georgina Historical Society, a not for profit charitable organization, your involvement will support our efforts to collect, preserve, and maintain artifacts, documents, and images relating to the history and heritage of Georgina. We also support the Georgina Pioneer Village and Archives as an educational medium and actively assist in its operations and maintenance. We have been an active voice regarding the preservation and maintenance of heritage sites and are currently involved with a restoration project of the caboose in the pioneer village. Membership participation and input in these activities is invaluable. As a member, your voice, opinion, care, and concern become part of a respected resource for the preservation of Georgina’s past as well
as a conscientious voice for shaping the future of your community.
