Welcome Back!

Milton Historical Society and the Waldie Blacksmith Shop, the only privately-operated history museum in urban Milton, are offering some great activities and events for Miltonians and visitors to Milton in 2023, including the popular walking tours, the informative monthly speakers series, blacksmith education and demonstrations, the annual garage sale and the tantalizing gourmet and spirits fundraising dinner! As always, the Society’s archives, which are gradually being digitized, are open by appointment only to students, would-be historians and business operators.

Please check our Activities & Events page occasionally for the latest updates and, if you have any questions or comments, please email us at historymilton@gmail.com or call us at (905) 875-4156. We look forward to seeing you at the shop soon!
