Many visitors to Cullen Gardens will remember the voice at the entrance to Lynde House of a little girl in a barrel urging you to come in and go through Lynde House. Soon you will be able to visit this Grand Lady again at its new home at the corner of Brock and Burns Street Whitby Ontario.

The Plaque and Stone marker are shown above right.

Mission Statement:
Whitby Historical Society serves to preserve a collection of artifacts brought together by interested citizens since 1967 as a Centennial Project. Our core purpose is to house and showcase these artifacts in a living museum setting as to benefit our community at large. To provide a centre for activities both actual and virtual that promote heritage, education, tourism and provide an atmosphere and culture of people mentoring people working together to benefit our community. Cherishing both things and ideas, people and their life endeavors we go forward preserving our past and present for the future.

Please join one of our committees as a volunteer to prepare for the next big part of the museum history as the WHS moves full circle in it's over forty year history of serving the community, visitors and tourists! WHS would like to thank The Town of Whitby for its generous consideration in moving and preparing Lynde House and the former Whitby Information site for use by the Whitby Historical Society as a tourist attraction and centre to better serve our community at large.

Whitby Historical Society artifacts present a cross section of objects created and used by First Nations, Early Settlers and others through  WW2 ...snipet of the life of people in Southern Ontario through their belongings and their creative endeavors.

Come back often and enjoy finding out more about history and heritage.
