Heritage Centre Home

Margaret McConaghy (left) and Effie (Hollingshead) SmithFor 10 years, the Richmond Hill Heritage Centre has been the hub of Heritage programming for all ages. Activities include lectures, hands-on workshops, birthday parties, camps and afternoon teas. Our educational programs have been designed to supplement and enhance school curricula (in keeping with the requirements of the Ontario Curriculum) and aid in the development of literacy skills. Groups of all ages are welcome to tour the Centre and participate in our customized group activities. Come and experience the past and present of Richmond Hill!

    Group Packages and Educational Programs
    Heritage Services staff and volunteers invite schools and groups of all ages to come learn with us and experience the heritage identity, visibility and activities in the community.

    Richmond Hill Heritage Centre is a unique facility that highlights our community’s heritage through exhibiting and interpreting its collection and by presenting educational programs and workshops.

    Located in picturesque Amos Wright Park, the Heritage Centre is an 1840's Regency style cottage, architecturally restored to reflect this historical period. The Centre offers two galleries, a discovery room and a meeting room.

    Don't forget your picnic lunch and to take the opportunity to stroll through Amos Wright Park when planning your group visit to the Heritage Centre! The beautiful gardens include herbs, heritage plants and, of course, roses - a flower of great historical significance for Richmond Hill.
