  • COVID-19 Update: It is with sadness and a deep sense of responsibility towards our community that the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our events for this year. We hope to shift our 2020 event schedule into 2021, if possible. We were very excited about our programming for 2020, and much work has gone into creating such a diverse calendar of events.

  • The KDHS has been asked to work on creating a virtual museum tour in conjunction with the City of Kawartha Lakes, the Ontario Museum Association, and other wonderful museums across Peterborough and Kawartha Lakes. We look forward to updating you on this initiative as we move forward with the project.
