Haldimand County Museum & Archives


Overlooking the Grand River, under a canopy of majestic oak trees in the Courthouse Park, the Haldimand County Museum and Archives preserves and presents Haldimand’s rich and diverse heritage for the public. Our gallery offers something fascinating and new, with ever-changing historical exhibits.

Also on-site is an authentic log cabin, dating to 1835. Originally located on the Old Plank Road near Caledonia, the cabin was once home to the Nicholas Family, early settlers to the area. Now the building is a perfect setting for interpreting the struggles and rewards of pioneer life.

The archives are a valuable resource for researchers and hobbyists alike, with an extensive collection of family histories, local histories, newspapers, church records, cemetery transcripts, census records, some birth, marriage and death records, and much more.

Microfiche/microfilm readers and Internet access are available to visitors to maximize the response to their research queries. If unable to visit, museum staff can be hired to do the research!

Special events and programs are held year-round at the museum, making it an ideal destination for family outings whether traveling from near or far. Contact the museum or  check our Events Calendar for more details. We hope to see you soon!
