The Sunderland & District Historical Society is a group of dedicated volunteers devoted to stimulatating public interest in the history of the people and places in and around the village of Sunderland.

Our work involves the Sunderland Museum's maintenance including the collection, classification, preservation and presentation of information and artifacts that reflect our local history.

We educate by improving community understanding and awareness of our local history by hosting events, supporting programs, and producing educational materials.
Our volunteers support those researching their ancestry by accessing the museum's considerable documentation on local families and settlements, local veterans, lot histories, cemeteries, school histories and so much more.

A Famous Local Entrepreneur


Thanks for the Support!

Recent grant funds from two sources to assist in the work of our historical society are greatly appreciated, particularly during this period made difficult by covid.

The Township of Brock has granted $1400 that will assist in offsetting ongoing expenses related to utility and maintenance costs.

The federal government through Canadian Heritage has extended $2000 to assist in the ongoing work of the society. This work includes collecting and archiving donated artefacts and responding to enquiries about the history of local families and properties. Additionally, a new project involving geocaching designed to get folks outdoors and visiting local historical sites is being supported.
