The Pickering Local History Collection (PLHC) will tell the story of Pickering from its earliest people to today’s growing City by collecting, preserving, and making available Pickering’s recorded history to the community. Our aim is to acquire, conserve, protect, interpret and promote the collection, make the materials available to the public, and support community building through our shared connection to Pickering.
