Collections Highlights

​Launched September 2019​​​

Welcome to our Collections Highlights page. Here we will list recently processed archival records that are now available for use in our Reading Room. It is not a comprehensive list, but includes highlights selected by our processing archivists.

Note:  Between January and mid-March 2020, Archives' staff undertook to arrange and describe ​several larger collections of records. They had not yet completed the process when, as a result of measure​s to prevent the spread of COVID-19,​ the Archives was closed. The archivists responsible for processing are looking forward to the day when they can resume "normal ​activities," and add to this list of highlights.

Remember that you can search the Collections Database for ​detailed descriptions of nearly 45,000 records held at the Simcoe County Archives.
