Lake Scugog Historical Society

The Lake Scugog Historical Society was founded by local citizens in 1969 to stimulate interest in local history by holding events of historical interest, to support the preservation of historical buildings and cemeteries and the erecting of markers on historic sites. In 1974 LSHS founded and then managed the Scugog Shores Museum until 2005. In 2009 LSHS partnered with the Museum to open the new Archival Centre at the Scugog Community Centre.

LSHS continues to research, document & promote locally significant history of the villages, communities, cemeteries and families of Scugog Township. Our activities now include a Speaker Series, Historical Walks and our Annual Antique & Nostalgia Show. We also publish & distribute 3 newsletters a year to our members. LSHS continues to advocate for the preservation of historical buildings and cemeteries and the erecting of markers.

LSHS is managed by a volunteer board of directors independent of the Township of Scugog and is a member of the Ontario Historical Society and a Registered Charity under the Income Tax Act.
