Our vision is to research and preserve the rich history of Kilbride and its surrounding area, identifying the known events and remembered stories, before the landmarks and early family connections are lost.


The purpose of this website is to collect, organize and share the history of the Kilbride area with current and former residents as well as anyone else interested in the fascinating and rich history of this small corner of Southern Ontario.
