Preserving the Past

Protecting the Present

The Cannington & Area Historical Society is a not-for-profit organization.
We operate strictly with the efforts of our dedicated volunteers.
We have some family and business records, photos, and our Gleaner newspaper is on microfilm.

Our resources however, are not digitized and we are in the early stages of cataloguing  our artifacts.

We will try to respond to your research requests however,
please understand that our resources may not support your enquiry.
