Explore the artifacts and archives that tell the stories of the people and places who helped shape Kawartha Lakes.

The care, management and organization of the artifact collection is guided through Kawartha Lakes Artifact Policy, as well as its Archival Policy, and its subsequent Management Directives. Staff collaboratively work and partner with Kawartha Lakes residents, community associations and businesses to ensure significant Kawartha Lakes based objects and records are identified, acquired, preserved and made accessible.

The artifact and archival collections are also guided by best practice in collections management, staff, volunteers, and external experts that take great care to gather, research, document and preserve the collection.

Kawartha Lakes holds its artifact and archival collection in trust for the people of Kawartha Lakes.

We are working behind the scenes to catalog all items to have them and their stories available for everyone.

We will be highlighting more artifacts as their history’s come to light.

Do you have an artifact or archival item that tells a story of any of the Kawartha Lakes communities and you would like to donate it to Kawartha Lakes?
