  • Simcoe County Historical Association
    The S.C.H.A. is a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to the preservation, appreciation, and dissemination of the history and heritage of Simcoe County.

    Originally organized in 1891 as The Simcoe County Pioneer and Historical Society, we have undergone several name changes. In 1971, we reorganized to become Simcoe County Historical Association. We have always operated under the Charter of the Ontario Historical Society.

    Our present activities include open public meetings where information about current activities of the Historical Societies is shared and the efforts of learned speakers are enjoyed.

    We have erected many Historic Plaques to commemorate events and locations. We have reprinted certain valuable but out-of-print publications.

    We hope to assist by fund matching a variety of worthy projects initiated by other local Historical Societies. We seek particularly to assist in all ways the many Historical Societies in our County who are so actively furthering the causes of their own local history.
