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.
This building is purported to be the old Temperance Lodge that was moved from Lowville to Highville. Do you have any information about this? Just where was Lowville’s Temperance Lodge? By Helen Callaway, Burlington Post
Who We Are
The Kilbride History Group was formed in the spring of 2019 from a gathering of current and former village residents interested in the history of Kilbride. Members of the Group meet monthly at Kilbride United Church to organize activities focused on the documentation of Kilbride’s rich local history.
This website is made possible by the hard work of our dedicated volunteer authors and researchers. Visit the contributors page to find out more about each volunteer and view a list of their articles.
