The Guelph – Wellington Branch of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario was first formed in the 1960s, under the leadership of Gordon Couling, a well-respected historian, artist and community activist for heritage preservation.
After a long period of inactivity, the local branch was reborn in 2007 and now boasts a membership close to 100.
The local branch is focused on education and advocacy for local heritage architecture and landscapes.
We host at least six meeting per year and participate in community events such as Heritage Week (third week of February). Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month. Check out the EVENTS page for upcoming meetings.
The Guelph – Wellington branch of the ACO is part of the larger provincial organization — the Architectural Conservany of Ontario – which was founded in 1933. To learn more about the ACO, visit their website.
