Welcome to the MDHS!

MDHS is a volunteer-run organization based in the Village of Merrickville-Wolford, a beautiful historic village spanning the Rideau Canal, between Smiths Falls and Kemptville. MDHS is mandated to encourage interest in the history and heritage of Merrickville-Wolford and to manage the museum at the Merrickville Blockhouse. 

MDHS holds monthly presentations throughout the year, as well as special events during the summer months. 

Next Event:   Our monthly scheduled for May 26, 2020 has been cancelled.

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the Merrickville and District Historical Society is cancelling the meeting scheduled for May 26, 2020.

We are monitoring the situation and our speaker series will resume once our public health organizations let us know that it is safe to do so. Please watch our websites and our FaceBook page for updates.  We will update our blog.
