Description and Service Details
Description (Service) The history of the older, agricultural communities of North Oakville is not very well acknowledged and with urban development on the formerly agricultural land north of Highway 5 (Dundas Street), the society believes now is an important time to capture and celebrate the history of the community and share it with new arrivals so the past will not be forgotten.  
The Society has renovated the Palermo schoolhouse for community use and heritage education.
