Established in 1965 by local individuals who were interested in preserving the history of Almonte and the townships of Beckwith, Lanark, Pakenham and Ramsay, the North Lanark Historical Society is one of the oldest historical societies in Lanark County.

Adopting the motto, “Preserve what we have gained,” the Society officially opened the North Lanark Regional Museum on June 26, 1971.

Since its inception, the Museum has encouraged the public to experience their unique heritage through inspiring museum programs, special events, and a readily accessible local history and genealogical collection. The North Lanark Regional Museum believes history, heritage, culture, and quality of life are fundamental to building a sustainable, prosperous and diversified community in Mississippi Mills and we strive to be an exemplary institution in our community and at large.

We are looking for individuals whose skills, passion, and experience will align with our mission, vision, and mandate.

The Board of Directors provides strategic leadership, governance, and oversees the operational and financial performance of the North Lanark Historical Society and Museum. Our Annual General Meeting will be held on Sunday, June 10th at 2:00pm at the North Lanark Regional Museum (647 River Road, Appleton).
