(Museum)
York Museum preserves and recounts the stories of the former City of York from its early beginnings to the present day. The former city developed as a working-class community, where inexpensive land offered tradespeople and new Canadians the opportunity to build their own homes at a time when home ownership was unattainable for most people.

The oldest object in the collection is a 3,000-year old stone axe that reminds us of the region's long First Nations history. The youngest artifact is a telephone switchboard that was used as late as the 1960s.
