Guelph and its environs; to bring together individuals interested in the
research, preservation, promotion and advancement of the history of the area; to
hold meetings for the presentation and discussion of historical information
relating to the Guelph area; to publish books, articles, papers, etc. about the
history of Guelph; to identify local sites of historical interest; and to
cooperate with other historical societies and related organizations. The GHS is
based out of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
