What's New

 Welcome to our new website.  Although it has a new look and feel, please note that it is still under construction.

Try out the new search facility.  Besides being able to search our archival descriptions as before, our virtual exhibits, the Town of Arnprior bylaws after 1970, and Patrick Wohler's genealogical newspaper articles are also now searchable.  The Archives is applying for further grants to continue digitizing documents and adding them to this platform.  This includes our extensive newspaper collection. We also encourage the public to donate to this worthwhile project through the link below.
