About BARRIE HISTORICAL ASSOCIATION
The Barrie Historical Association has produced DVD's on the history of Barrie. These are all available at the Simcoe County Museum in Midhurst.
The Historical Association has created an award to honour businesses, government and individuals for their efforts to celebrate Barrie's history. Recipients of the award will be those who display pictures and memorabilia of Barrie's past in areas that are accessible to the general public. Each recipient will receive a certificate suitable for framing and a picture of Barrie's waterfront. The public is encouraged to submit nominations for the award to the BHA.
Five meetings a year in Sep, Nov, Jan, Mar, May on the second Thursday of those months at 7:30 pm, usually at Barrie City Hall.
