Summer Happenings

Come and join us at this upcoming event!


August 27th, 2017  1:00 to 4:00pm

 Old Tyme Picnic in conjunction with Westfield  Heritage Village. We will be launching our new book "Connecting the dots: snapshots of Flamborough Communities" ,our Canada 150 project.

The Heritage Society is hosting the event but we will not be providing food or drink.   
 Please bring your own  picnic lunch - as simple or elaborate as you like -  and join us in the picnic area, near the entrance to Westfield Heritage Village. There is no charge to use this area. However we encourage you to take advantage of the location and to look around the Village. Entrance fees and information can be found on their website https://westfieldheritage.ca/

  There will be various games and demonstrations in the village, and places like the village store will have drinks and snacks.
At this point , we believe that there will be a limited variety of drinks and snacks available from the restaurant near the picnic area. This event will be a lot of fun - come and join us!

 Westfield is also hosting a VW Car show at the same time so there will be something for everyone.




 Several of our local history publications have been out of print for a number of years. However, we have republished them and they are now available on a CD or in hard copy. These include "Carlisle Beginnings" , "The Mountsberg Heritage" and "... and they came to East Flamborough".  We also have copies of  "Into the Cauldron: The Experiences of a CEF Infantry Officer During the Great War" , edited by Steven E. Sawell.  Please check our publications page for more information. Some titles have a link to excerpts from the book, to give you a better idea of what is in it.

We need your help

The Flamborough Archives is working on three projects and we are asking for your help .

The first is a planned book on the history behind the names of communities that exist, or did exist at one time, in Flamborough.

The second project is a compilation of the businesses in Flamborough, with an emphasis on Waterdown, from around 1850 onwards. 

The third project is an inventory of street names in Waterdown, and the history behind the name.

We are looking for any material which would help with this research - photos, stories, advertisements or flyers etc. We would be happy to scan your original photos if you don't want to part with them.

If you have ANYTHING that can help, please contact the Archives at (905) 540-5161 or flamarch@hpl.ca
