The Guelph Historical Society has collected a wealth of local resources — photos, journals, papers and artifacts — thanks to the research of our members and donations received over the past 50 years.  We have recently completed an inventory and donation of our collection to the Guelph Civic Museum.

How to Access the GHS Collection

The GHS Collection has the catalogue number prefix of 2014.84.


We are not currently accepting donations.  If you have items of interest relating to the history of Guelph, we suggest you contact the Guelph Civic Museum (artifacts and photographs) or the Guelph Public Library (documents) to arrange for donation.
