More About King Heritage & Cultural Centre

Home to the King Museum Collection, the King Archival Collection, Arts Society King, and the King Township Historical Society; the KHCC celebrates all things cultural. With a museum collection of over 2000 artifacts, an extensive archives, four historic buildings, two exhibition galleries, and a performance hall situated on over an acre of parkland, the KHCC has something for everyone.​

The Museum is housed in the Old Kinghorn School SS #23 built in 1861 with modern additions added in the 1960's. In 1978 the school was purchased by the Township of King and placed under the care of the King Township Historical Society.

Made up of dedicated volunteers and local residents, the Historical Society started the museum in 1979 and officially opened in 1982. For 20 years the Society ran programs and events and began the collection and cataloguing of local artefacts.
