We are open to the public every Wednesday from 10am to 1pm, and the first and third Saturdays of the month from 1pm to 4pm (except for holidays and weather permitting).

“Our Mandate is to acquire, preserve and make available to the public, records of enduring value to Middlesex Centre, and in particular to the former Townships of Delaware, Lobo, London and Portions of Westminster.”

The Middlesex Centre Archives was established in 2013 by a group of volunteers. In 2015 we became incorporated with support and recognition from the Ontario Historical Society. In 2016 we received charitable status from Revenue Canada, which allows us to issue tax receipts for financial donations of $20 or more. As a member of the Archives Association of Ontario, we are an officially recognized Archives.

Middlesex Centre Archives is funded totally by donations and grants. We are thankful to the Municipality of Middlesex Centre, members of the community and numerous community organizations for their financial support.
