Burford Township Historical Society
BTHS is an agricultural museum, staffed only by volunteers. Over the years the residents of Burford Township have gathered up and donated artefacts to the museum. The summer of 2012 was spent rejuvenating the old Town Hall, and the next few years will be spent cataloguing artefacts and archives. Slowly, we will be bringing artefacts back onto public view. As we build our database, archive images will be made available to persons interested in local history and geneology.
Our next event is our Strawberry Social. Fresh, local Ontario Strawberries along with ice cream and cake. On Sunday June 16th, from 1:30 to 4:00 pm. Join us for an afternoon of old fashioned fun.
Don't you just love this picture? Taken at the same farm as the combine picture. The grandmother (or perhaps even great-grandmother)...
