Who We Are Heritage Cambridge is a volunteer based, not-for-profit organization, comprised of a Board of Directors and a voting membership of like-minded citizens that together celebrate the wonderful landscapes, architecture and rich history of Cambridge and North Dumfries.
Heritage Cambridge is a local branch of The Architectural Conservancy of Ontario which operates a network of autonomous branches in communities across Ontario. The ACO, a registered charitable organization, has been involved through advocacy and direct action in preserving Ontario's buildings and structures of architectural merit and places of natural beauty since 1933.
What We Do Heritage Cambridge's purpose is to promote the preservation of buildings, neighbourhoods and natural areas that are of architectural, historic and cultural significance; and enhance the unique character and quality of life in Cambridge and North Dumfries.
You can find them everywhere in Mennonite cemeteries and graveyards. Worn out and broken gravemarkers. Some of these mark the final resting place of some of our earliest and most prominent settlers. From some of these, literally thousands of persons throughout the area are descended. The purpose of this group is to find persons who are interested in working together to either replace or restore these gravemarkers
Old photographs are a treasured part of any community, organization or family's history. Unfortunately, many of these treasures do not come neatly labeled on the back with names, dates, or locations. The photographs have a story to tell...but the who, what, and where is a bit of a mystery.
Whether you enjoy browsing photos and sharing your knowledge of local heritage or you have photos that need identifying, this group is here to help. Join the Bureau of the Lost and Found, share your photographs and help your peers put names to faces and places.
