Richmond Hill Garden and Horticultural Society Donation
The Richmond Hill Public Library would like to express its gratitude to the Richmond Hill Garden and Horticultural Society for its generous donation of the Society's archives, dating back to 1914. The collection includes yearbooks, membership lists, meeting minutes, photos and more, and offers a reflection of the Town's history through its many achievements and contributions. It is the Library's goal to protect and preserve the donation and make it available to a larger audience.
