The Trafalgar Township Historical Society has four identified goals:
- Documentation: We provide the community the opportunity to have their historical photos scanned and their oral histories recorded to preserve them for future generations. The first scanning day took place on September 21, 2005 and has been an ongoing activity. To scan your family’s photos, provide us with a disk of scanned images.
- Education: We provide a forum for Oakville’s citizens, many of whom are new to the area, to explore the rich history of Trafalgar Township.
- Celebration: We celebrate our area’s rural roots and give the community, especially children, a tangible way to connect with our area history.
- Preservation: We engage the public to outline the need to preserve buildings of historical significance. Our first project was the preservation of the one room Palermo schoolhouse on the north side of Dundas, east of Bronte Road.
