Trafalgar Township Historical Society

“Recognizing, documenting, educating and celebrating the rich agricultural heritage of North Oakville,Trafalgar Township”

Remembering Trafalgar Township’s Soldiers

Each November, we gather at the Trafalgar Memorial in North Oakville for our Remembrance Service. The Memorial is located at the east end of Memorial Park, at the corner of Oak Park Blvd and Central Park Drive.

Our yearly Remembrance Service recognizes Trafalgar Township veterans who served during World War I, World War II and the Korean War. The memorial features the names of almost 700 men and women who served their country.

A compilation of Trafalgar Township’s WW1Soldiers is available at this link.


Open Archives

We host our Open House at the heritage Palermo School House. Check the calendar below for the next scheduled day.

Meet our archivist, search our archives, research township family history or just come to reminisce. You’ll never know who will show up with a fascinating new piece of local history.

Admission FREE but voluntary donations are welcome.

PLEASE NOTE: From December through March, if Halton school buses are cancelled due to poor weather, our Archives Open event will also be cancelled.
