An artifact Collection representing Southern Ontario
Welcome to the new Virtual Museum
Come back as this website grows to provide you with entertaining and educational virtual representations of The Whitby Historical Society collection of artifacts. Our volunteer committees meet once a month and engage in organizing fundraising activities, historical talks and events, as well as planning for online displays. Fundraising efforts are carried on to provide a museum building for the over 9000 artifacts together with activities areas. The History Museum located in downtown Whitby Ontario is now closed, artifacts have lovingly been professionally packed and stored and are awaiting their new home in the near future. Please join us and be a fundraising volunteer or an event coordinator volunteer.
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.
