The Victoria County Historical Society (VCHS) is a non-profit organization designed to increase community awareness and appreciation of the local heritage. And the area has so much history to share!

Victoria County was formed in 1854 as The United Counties of Peterborough and Victoria. It was separated from Peterborough in 1863. In 2001 the county was dissolved and reformed as the City of Kawartha Lakes.

Today the VCHS celebrates and shares local stories focusing on the area’s connection to Canada’s history.

There are a number of upcoming events to highlight the area’s rich history.

Consider the Victoria County Historical Creative Writing Competition. You have to be 18 years old or older and submit an unpublished story of any genre, to a maximum of 2500 words. Deadline for submissions is midnight on September 9th, 2018. Visit the Olde  Gaol Museum website for all of the details.

Trunks to Treasure: Bringing history to life from Souvenir to Artifact is open for public viewing from August 9th to the 31st.
