The new building - the Stratford-Perth Archives - located in Stratford, Ontario is almost ready to be occupied and the Grand Opening will be held Saturday, June 6, 2015.
Next month in May, they will reopen the reading room at the new building (with limited stack retrievals) with a new schedule of hours. They will move to retrievals from the stacks over the following 2 – 3 weeks. Please call ahead of any research visits in May to confirm open hours and what records are available.
They will post updates regarding the progress of the move and any additional service disruptions on the Perth County website as the project moves along and you can contact them if you have any questions.
They have many collections to research including tax assessments, newspapers, and township records.
You can phone 519-271-0531, ext 250, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org

The new building is at 4273 Huron Road (Highway 8 West, Next Door to Stratford-Perth Museum), Stratford, Ontario.
