The Simcoe County Archives is closed to the public until further notice.
Welcome to the Simcoe County Archives
While our physical location remains closed due to the Covid19 pandemic, we have a lot of great content available online.
To search through our collections please visit our online Descriptions database. For a deeper dive into Simcoe County's history check out our Online Exhibits, the Simcoe County Remembers database, and the Archives blog.
October is here which means that spooky season is upon us! For fun this year, the staff at the Simcoe County Archives have put together a Guide to Researching Ghosts and Hauntings with Archival Records. Happy Hallowe'en!
Collecting Community Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Archives is looking for the public's assistance in developing a Community Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic collection. We know that many of you are creating and collecting memories and information about the pandemic. Items are not being accepted at this time, but we have created a guide to assist you in assembling materials for future donation. Visit our Collecting Community Responses to the COVID-19 Pandemic page for more information.
The Simcoe County Archives and the Simcoe County Museum are working together to collect and preserve items that tell the local story of the COVID-19 Pandemic. Visit the Museum's website to learn about how it is Collecting Stories of COVID.
Resource guide: Historical Research from Home
The Archives has developed a resource for teachers, parents, and students learning about Simcoe County's history from home. Historical Research from Home contains a list of online resources to help you learn about our communities.
