Bayfield Historical Society & Archives

À propos


The Bayfield Historical Society in the Village of Bayfield, Ontario, is dedicated to recording and preserving our rich historical legacy for future generations. The Historical Society discovers, collects, classifies, publishes and presents materials concerning the history of Bayfield and surrounding area, and its people. 


An ongoing project, which started in 2018, is to copy or photograph our extensive collection into PastPerfect, a museum software.  For this we employ a full-time part-time adult.

In June, July and August we hire students who work on projects in the Archives, for example: our displays, social media posts, quadricycle rental, welcoming visitors and other various projects overseen by the Archivist, Assistant Archivist, and the rest of the Board.

Our volunteer Board is in control of all collections and decisions made with regard to upkeep of collections and building maintenance, including month to month costs and utilities, insurance, and taxes.  We apply for municipal and government grants but rely on donations for this registered non-profit organization. 


In order to promote the education of Bayfield area residents of all ages, the Society will discover, collect, classify and preserve any material concerning the history of the area and its people. To hold open meetings for the presentation of papers and discussions. To publish local historical material.


Genealogists have a number of resources from which to draw. We have original archive collections on site which can be viewed by special appointment by emailing in advance.

We are also offering to research your family tree using Canadian and International Federal Census records, Birth and Death Certificates, Marriage Licenses, extensive newspaper collections, Immigration, and Cemetery records. If you supply us with your grandparents' birth and death dates, as well as your parents, we will create a personalized family tree for you. We require a $50 fee in advance based on 2 hours of research.   Please contact us for more details.
