Whitby Historical Society is pleased to have been chosen by the Town of Whitby to operate the new Lynde House Museum & Warren General Store.
Heartfelt thanks to an Anonymous Donor through
the Durham Community Foundation.
Lynde House Museum is an active vibrant place that provides many benefits to our community and beyond.
From a basis in heritage, the museum provides a place for seniors to volunteer
in meaningful ways, for people with special needs to participate in and provides educational programs for children and events that enrich families.
Many theatrical style immersive and living history tours and events are held each year. The stories of the Lynde and Warren Families are sure to inspire you!
Lynde House Museum is a cultural anchor in the community that shines like a light to visitors from all over the world.
Whitby Historical Society three pillars are: To inspire with stories that bring the museum to life. To reach far and wide through engagement. To teach and practice sustainability (as ingenuity of our forefathers and as the practice of sustainability in life endeavor)). Promotes public interest in maintaining a living museum as an experiential interpretation of history; a cultural anchor in the community at large as a microcosm of Southern Ontario. Activities and programming for the purposes of empowering citizens through life long learning about heritage.
