Serving the community since 1897

As one of Ontario's oldest historical societies, PHS has played a lead role in preserving and promoting Peterborough's rich architectural and cultural history.

Our goal is to generate wider public interest in local history by highlighting the unique people and events of the past that have shaped our city.

The Peterborough Historical Society erects historical plaques in the city and area, like this one located at The Hutchison House Living Museum on Brock Street.

The society owns and operates Hutchison House Living History Museum in downtown Peterborough, which is open to the public year-round and offers a glimpse of local pioneer life in the nineteenth century.

The Peterborough Historical Society gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough, City of Peterborough and the Peterborough Foundation.
