Uxbridge Historical Centre (Museum & Archives)

The Uxbridge Historical Centre (UHC) is a museum with archives on a 5-acre site overlooking the beautiful Uxbridge Valley and Oak Ridges Moraine. The UHC is a steward for a collection of over 6,000 artifacts and 10 buildings that preserve the history and heritage of Uxbridge Township. Textiles, agricultural equipment, military history, musical instruments, medical history, and Quaker life are a few of the many things that come alive through the UHC’s permanent and temporary exhibitions. The museum also regularly hosts educational programs, tours, camps, weddings and numerous events throughout the year.

As part of the Lucy Maud Montgomery Trail and Anne & Maud Experience, you can visit the Scott Township Municipal Hall from Maud’s hometown, as well as the Nesbitt Shed and 5th Line Church used when filming the CBC Series ‘Road to Avonlea’. Also, view the WWI Red Cross Signature Quilt with Maud’s married name sewn on. Be sure to ask the staff about her family’s involvement in the WWI.
