The Society for the Preservation of Historic Thornhill makes Thornhill Archives accessible to everyone wishing to learn more about Thornhill history through the extensive documentation in our collection. Historians, genealogists, students, and others, are encouraged to come and see what the Thornhill Archives has to offer.
