New:  Collecting Community Responses to the COVI​D-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 an​d collecting memories and infor​mation 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​.

National Indigenous Peoples Month

In commemoration of Indigenous History Month in Canada, and National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21, the Archives has posted a blog about  world-champion rower Jacob Gill Gaudaur, a great grandson of Chief Big Shilling.

Mmm... ​Butter Tarts

The earliest-known printed recipe for butter tarts was published right here in Simcoe County.  As you isolate at home, why don't you try Mrs. MacLeod's "filling for tarts" recipe out for yourself?

​Resource guide:  Historical Research from Hom​e

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.​​​​
