In fulfilling the motto “Explore, Preserve, Relate” the Society has undertaken many activities.

Guest speakers at its monthly meetings cover a broad range of topics about the Hamilton area. Many of these addresses have been published in the Society’s journal Wentworth Bygones.


The ongoing collection and preservation of historical photographs resulted in the popular volumes Around and About Hamilton 1785-1985.
Hamilton: Panorama of Our Past and Downtown Hamilton: The Heart of It All
