Our mandate is to preserve and make available the documentary heritage of Bruce County. In the Reading Room, visitors may research numerous Bruce County related topics, starting with the reference material in the research area and moving on to archival material.
Experienced staff make your Archives experience Unforgettable! From Monday to Friday, archival materials are available through the archives staff. For access to original documents on the weekend, you need only call or e-mail Archives staff during the week to request that the materials be left out for you.
