L.R. Wilson Heritage Research Archives

This new research facility, located at 286 King Street, Port Colborne, was completed in 2006, and designed externally to recapture the spirit of Port Colborne's first Town Hall which was built in 1873 and torn down a half century later.

 Internally, its purposes are to provide:

- A climate-controlled repository for the documentary history of the City of  Port Colborne and area.

- A Research Room suitable for the study of those resources.

- A Conference Room large enough to accommodate groups with diverse  purposes.

Mandate:  The L. R. Wilson Heritage Research Archives will continue the collection and preservation of the Documentary of history.
