Using images from the King Township Archives, Together Again is a feel-good exhibit of photo enlargements. The 20th century black and white images depict community gatherings and everyday life from the 1920s through the 1960s and capture that feeling of togetherness. This exhibit is a celebration of getting back to normal and how good it feels to be together again!

King Township is the largest municipality in York Region with the smallest population. This exhibit traces the development of King from mills and rolling hills to the busy township that it is today. Visit the King Heritage & Cultural Centre and discover how this community of communities became a great place to call home.
A new online exhibit, guest curated by four Museum Studies graduates, Portraits of the Land explores how ongoing land development in King Township has changed how its residents view and relate to their environment.
