Meetings

Based on the advice from the Town of Cobourg and the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge District Health Unit, face to face meetings at Victoria Hall have been cancelled until further notice. In order to stay connected and to keep you safe during the pandemic, monthly meetings are taking place by Virtual Zoom webinars. You can join by desktop or a laptop computer, tablet or smart phone!

 

Cobourg and District Historical Society Meetings are held every month except May, June, July, August and December.  Meetings are held in the Citizen's Forum in Victoria Hall on the fourth Tuesday in the Month.  Meetings start at 7:30pm but coffee and cookies are available starting at 7:00pm.  Meetings are $5 for non-members and free for members of the society and students.

In 2017, members of the Cobourg Museum Foundation undertook to create a map of Cobourg as it would have been in 1867.  But it was not just a paper map but a 3D model.  It was on display for a short while in the lobby of Victoria Hall - below is a photo of it taken at that time.  It is planned to feature it from time to time at the Sifton-Cooke Heritage centre which is operated by the Museum Foundation.
