Please help.

We are raising funds for the 'Move Back to Waterdown'. The Archives and the Society office will be in the new Waterdown Library and Community Centre building and we need funds for new furniture and moving expenses. Tax receipts will be issued for all donations of $25.00 or more.

 

 

 

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

Thanks!

The Flamborough Archives has Moved!

The Archives old location at the Flamborough Municiple Services building at 163 Dundas Street East has been torn down to make way for the New Waterdown Library (& Archives).

We have now reopened at our temporary location on the 4th Floor of the Hamilton Library Central Branch.

The Hamilton Library Central Branch is located at 55 York Blvd in downtown Hamilton.
