The Society follows all Covid-19 protocols as mandated by Southwestern Public Health, which includes wearing masks, social distancing and limiting the number of visitors to the building.

Oxford County requires ALL visitors to their buildings to complete a short health form. There are signs at both entrances to the building listing instructions for completing the form.

Our Resource Centre offices are located in the same building as the Oxford County Archives and the Woodstock Branch of Ontario Ancestors. The building was originally the Governor’s House of the Old Oxford County Jail. It was extensively renovated between 2009 and 2012 and a new annex added to the left of the original building.

The Resource Centre is closed all statutory holidays and over the Christmas holiday season.
