Meaford has a robust and unique history that transcends it's borders and delights all those who visit.

The Meaford Museum was originally built in 1985 as the Town’s Pumping House.  Later it was turned into the Public Utilities Offices and finally, in 1961 after a sizable donation of historical memorabilia was received by the town, the building was turned into the Meaford Museum. 

Since that time several renovations, additions and improvements have been made creating the new Meaford Museum as an interactive and exciting hub of local history.  You will frequently find school or senior groups, individuals and families learning about the history of the former Town of Meaford and Townships of Sydenham and St. Vincent. 

The Meaford Museum is an important stop on the Apple Pie Trail, featuring information about the local apple growing history. 

Also for 2014, there is an exhibit about local inventor and hero Andrew Gawley, the Man with Iron Hands.  Learn more about Meaford’s internationally renowned story of Beautiful Joe and the area which inspired John Muir to create the Sierra Club.
