Established in 1972, the Uxbridge Historical Centre (UHC) preserves the history and heritage of the Township of Uxbridge. Located on a 5-acre site that overlooks the beautiful Uxbridge Valley and Oak Ridges Moraine, the UHC consists of 10 buildings and more than 10,000 artifacts and 6,000 archives.
The Uxbridge Historical Centre is situated on the land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange among the Mississauga Peoples. We acknowledge that it is covered by the Williams Treaty and is the traditional territory of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation. This land is now the home of many Indigenous communities. We honour, recognize, and respect this nation and Indigenous Peoples as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we meet today.
The UHC connects today's audiences with the rich heritage of Uxbridge Township through the collection, preservation, interpretation and display of artifacts, documents and photographs, and related programming that illustrate the history of the Uxbridge area and the former Townships of Uxbridge and Scott.
The UHC is a heritage leader and important community resource, providing engaging exhibitions, workshops and other programs that explore and share the history of the Uxbridge area with diverse audiences.
