Cloyne and District Historical Society
The Cloyne and District Historical Society is a not-for-profit, charitable, volunteer organization whose mandate is to preserve and record the history of the local area and to share that knowledge with the public. The Society's catchment area is the Highway 41 corridor from Kaladar in the south to Denbigh and Griffith/Matawatchan in the north, as well as Flinton to the west and Harlowe to the east.
Our collections, both in artifacts and documents, reflect the history of this area beginning from settlement times in the 1850s, with emphasis on such themes as settlement and pioneer life, mining, logging, tourism and the building of the Addington Colonization Road.
With its unique development across county lines, its economic challenges after the departure of the timbering businesses and its determination to remain viable, this community has much fascinating history to impart. In recent years, the addition of an Archives to our Muaeum has meant that family histories, photos, land deeds and other paper documents are available for researchers.
The Cloyne and District Historical Society is a member of The Commons at Flickr.com - a worldwide group of organizations who share photos and documents online. Viewers of Flickr can download/uploaded resources in full resolution at no charge with no copyright restrictions.
