   The Osgoode Township
Historical Society and Museum
traces its founding back to
1972, when a group of
dedicated residents gathered
to research, create interest
in, collect data about,
preserve, and publish the
history of Osgoode Township.
The founding group developed

rapidly and with foresight,
being incorporated under the
Province of Ontario Statute
by Letters Patent, issued in
the name of the Osgoode
Township Historical Society
and Museum on the 25th day of
November, 1975.
   The initial objective was
to prepare a story for the

Osgoode Township’s 150th
anniversary, which was coming
in 1977. The group held its
first meeting in the
Museum/Archives building on
August 23, 1973. The official
opening of the Museum was
held on September 21, 1973,
with many interesting
articles of bygone days on

display for the first
Visitors Day. The Agriculture
Museum building was
officially opened on August
12, 1989.
   The purpose and
objectives of the Osgoode
Township Historical Society
and Museum are:
   -to encourage research
