The Osgoode Township Museum houses a collection of approximately 10,000 objects, ranging from housewares and clothing to full sized tractors and other farming equipment.
The Osgoode Township Museum was founded on November 23, 1972 with the goals of doing research, preserving, publishing and promoting the history of Osgoode Township and the genealogy of its residents.
The Agricultural Museum building was subsequently built and officially opened on August 12, 1989. It now provides a home for the vast farming and industrial collection held by the Museum. The Museum continues to collect information and artifacts relating to life in Osgoode Township and make them available to the public.
