Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society

The society is located on Front Street in Campbellford on the main street in the middle of the town, and it is in a busy place with monthly meetings, member’s helping with cemetery transcriptions, and the Campbellford Model Railroad Club.

They have put together a Tour Guide and Map, and it contains two maps of the town (a town map, and a general map of the area), and inside of the publication, there is two full pages of sites called the Heritage of Our Community which, for example, the Ferris Provincial Park where the Highland Games are held every summer, the former bridge Street School, and the Empire Cheese & Butter Co-operative, the only cheese-making facility in Northumberland County.

They have produced four books - Gleanings, A History of Campbellford-Seymour; Campbellford Memorial Hospital: 50 Years of Care Beyond Compare, 1953-2003; A Walk Down Memory Lane: 150 Years of the Campbellford-Seymour Agricultural Society, 1854-2004; and Glimpses of Campbellford: A Collection of 300 Postcards from the Archives of the Campbellford-Seymour Heritage Society.

For research purposes, they have 119,000 family names, 100 Family Files, in their local database for Campbellford and Seymour, and Campbellford/Seymour Veterans of World War I and II.
