Established in 1900, the Norfolk Historical Society has collected over 200 years of local history, including artifacts, paintings, furniture, books, documents, photos and records. We display and provide access to these collections five days a week year round.

The Norfolk Hertiage Centre offers outstanding facilities for family history research. We have extensive records of old Norfolk County families -- genealogies, marriages, cemetery listings, newspapers, land records, wills, family bibles, diaries, censuses, church records, etc.

In addition, the Centre has one of Ontario's finest collections of books and microfilms for genealogy research beyond Norfolk -- for Ontario, for Canada, and for Early America.
