A Message from our President
On behalf of the Stoney Creek Historical Society (SCHS), I welcome you to our web site.
We exist to capture and preserve the history of Stoney Creek for current and future generations.
I am very proud of what we have accomplished to date, but there is more to do.
Please have a good look at the various tabs that we have established. We welcome your thoughts and comments.
We have an exceptional Reference Library and Archive. Our volunteers have gathered a number of historic documents, records, and photos, and will assist you if you wish to make a donation. Our continuing appreciation to Councillor Maria Pearson who was instrumental in acquiring our current Reference Library and Archive location.
We have monthly meetings, each with a dynamic speaker and an engaging topic.
Admission $2.00 for non-members and refreshments follow.
My thanks to our members and corporate sponsors for their ongoing support.
Do join us. I know that you’ll be glad that you did.
Meetings are held at 7:00 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month (September to May) in the former City of Stoney Creek Council Chambers, at 777 #8 Highway.
