Document Centre:
The Innisfil Document Centre is the largest single project undertaken by the Society. The centre is a collection of photographic copies of wills, deeds, diaries, newspaper clippings, invoices, marriage certificates, school registers, account books, photographs, minute books and many more samples of historic interest.
The purpose of the collection is to make local history readily available. Due to an active partnership with the Innisfil Public Library, this collection is steadily being digitized and shared online which allows world-wide access. We cooperate fully with the Simcoe County Archives where much of the original material is stored.
 
The Document Centre collection, which is housed at Knock School Heritage Site, is expanding as new material is accepted. This process is carried out by volunteers who, in work sessions, prepare the material for placement in the document centre by categorizing, numbering, typing and photocopying.
 
Items held at the Document Centre can be viewed by appointment.
