"Preserving the past for the future"

Who Are We?

The York Pioneer and Historical Society is the oldest historical society in Ontario. Since 1869, the York Pioneers have worked to fulfill the founders’ goal of “preserving the past for the future”. We own and operate Scadding Cabin, Toronto’s oldest house, now on the grounds of Exhibition Place; we hold a spring dinner and a fall bus tour; we publish and launch an annual journal of history articles (included with your membership). For more information about our long history, see the About Us page.
