Many visitors to Cullen Gardens will remember the voice at the entrance to Lynde House of a little girl in a barrel urging you to come in and go through Lynde House. Soon you will be able to visit this Grand Lady again at its new home at the corner of Brock and Burns Street Whitby Ontario.

The Plaque and Stone marker are shown above right.

Come back as this website grows to provide you with entertaining and educational virtual representations of The Whitby Historical Society collection of artifacts. Our volunteer committees meet once a month and engage in organizing fundraising activities, historical talks and events, as well as planning for online displays. Fundraising efforts are being carried on to provide for our over 9000 artifacts, presentations and events.  The History Museum which was located in downtown Whitby Ontario is now closed and artifacts have been lovingly and professionally packed and stored awaiting their new home at historic Lynde House once it is moved to the corner of Brock and Burns.

Please join one of our committees as a volunteer to prepare for the next big part of the museum history as the WHS moves full circle in it's over forty year history of serving the community, visitors and tourists! WHS would like to thank The Town of Whitby for its generous consideration in moving and preparing Lynde House and the former Whitby Information site for use by the Whitby Historical Society as a tourist attraction and centre to better serve our community at large.

Whitby Historical Society artifacts present a cross section of objects created and used by First Nations, Early Settlers and others through  WW2 ...snipet of the life of people in Southern Ontario through their belongings and their creative endeavors.

Come back often and enjoy finding out more about history and heritage.
