The Halton County Museum was founded in 1961. In 1974 it became the responsibility of the Region when the new Regional Municipality of Halton was formed. In 2014, Regional Council adopted a new Master Plan for the Museum under which it is being transformed into Heritage Services, which supports regional heritage organizations and institutions and cares for Regionally-owned heritage assets.

Halton Region Heritage Services is located on the site of the formerly known Halton Region Museum, situated on the five acre historic site of the former Alexander Homestead in the heart of Kelso Conservation Area, Milton. Based at Kelso Conservation Area.
