Heritage and culture live at the King Heritage & Cultural Centre (KHCC)!
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 KHCC is proud to work closely with our community partners in the heritage and cultural sectors. The KHCC is home to Arts Society King (ASK) and the King Township Historical Society (KTHS).
King Township Historical Society is a not-for-profit volunteer organization established in 1972.
Goals and objectives:
- To encourage research into the history of King Township
- To secure and preserve an accurate account of the progress and development of the Township
- To promote public interest in the history of King Township
Over the decades, KTHS members have been actively engaged in the preservation and restoration of King's heritage such as the King Railway station, the King Christian Church, the Lloydtown Pioneer Cemetery, the Lloydtown Cairn, signage and plaque for the Toronto Carrying Place Trail, the King Township Museum and the King Township Archives.
Arts Society King (ASK) is a not-for-profit volunteer organization established in 2005.
Vision: Enriching King Township through arts and culture for all.
Mission: Arts Society King promotes, supports and advocates for arts and culture through effective partnerships and innovative events and programs.
Our donors are a diverse mix of private citizens and businesses and members are primarily artists. Citizens choose to support ASK initiatives and artists join to gain valuable exposure and opportunities. Donations and membership both support cultural activities in King Township.
One of Arts Society King’s most effective partnerships is with King Township (KT) who has recognized the boundless value of arts and culture within our community. King Township has acknowledged ASK as an important contributor of cultural experiences that help maintain and fulfill King’s socio-cultural identity.
