Orillia Ontario Canada, "The Sunshine City" is the gateway to Ontario's cottage country and is known as a great vacation destination but we also have a proud and robust industrial history.
The Orillia Heritage Centre is a volunteer group dedicated to preserving that industrial past for future generations.
We do not have a physical venue to display our collection so we're creating this web site for all to see, enjoy and learn about Orillia's industrial history. Please bear with us as we add pictures, articles and other resources.
Check out our Orillia Companies database, we're compiling information on every company that operated in the Orillia area up until 1980. You can use it for research and if you have some information we're missing - please pass it along so others can benefit.
If you have artifacts, old pictures or a story that you'd like to share, we'd love to hear from you.
