"Documenting, celebrating and preserving the agricultural heritage of North Oakville"
About the Trafalgar Township Historical Society
The Trafalgar Township Historical Society was established in January 2006 founded on the work of the Trafalgar 200 Committee, a group of citizens who spent a year to plan activities in celebration of the 200th Anniversary of Trafalgar Township in an effort to increase awareness and foster a desire to preserve the history of the Township.
While the history of the lakeside Oakville community is well commemorated through Oakville's Museum Erchless Estate, the Thomas House and Bronte's Sovereign House, the history of the older, agricultural communities of North Oakville is not so well acknowledged.
With urban development about to take place on the formerly agricultural land north of Hwy. 5 (Dundas), we believe now is an important time to capture and celebrate the history of our community and share it with new arrivals so the past will not be forgotten.
As we move forward, the Trafalgar Township Historical Society intends to establish a museum and an archive to preserve the Township's history
