Welcome

Welcome to the Milton Historical Society, located at 16 James Street in Milton, Ontario. We are above the Waldie Blacksmith Shop, one of the MHS major restoration projects.

The Milton Historical Society and the Waldie Blacksmith Shop are located in historic downtown Milton, between Main Street and Mill Street.

Jim Dills - In Memorium

Jim Dills, who co-founded Milton Historical Society in 1977, helped to guide it to a better place both inside and outside of the Board of Directors and, perhaps most critically, made local history matter, passed away on Friday afternoon after a long illness.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of MHS and all of its members, we have extended our deepest condolences to Jim’s wife Shirley, and the Dills family, their friends and acquaintances in our community and beyond it. All who knew Jim are grieving his passing.

A public celebration of Jim’s life will be held at St. Paul’s United Church, Milton on Sat. Sept. 7, 2019 at 2:00 pm.
