History:
Heritage Meaford

ACO Meaford was formed in 2000 with the specific objective of preserving the historic Meaford Hall, its neighbouring Fire Hall and the Meaford Museum. The organization secured substantial public funding through Ontario's SuperBuild program to fund the restoration of Meaford Hall and the Meaford Museum. The group also raised more than $100,000 toward those restorations from private donors in the community.

Today, Meaford continues to work with local government, businesses and the community to maintain our heritage as a vital part of Meaford's life and economy.
