Argyle Township Court House & Archives (ATCHA) will occasionally host special events which are open to the public and are often free of charge.  We will always indicate whether there is a fee required for any event.

Events may take place at the Archives, the Court House, or on the grounds between the two buildings.  Occasionally, we may put on events at other locations within the community, especially when we partner with other groups.

For all events on site, parking is available at the rear of the buildings.  There is wheelchair ramp access at the Archives and a wheelchair accessible washroom.  However, the Court House may not be accessible to those with physical impairments, due to narrow doorways, various floor heights and stairs. 

Many of our events are now offered in a hybrid format, which allows for in-person attendance, as well as providing the option to join virtually from the comfort of your own home.  For this reason, we will often ask guests to register, even if the event is free.  We need to ensure we have enough space for attendees and also provide those attending virtually with Zoom links.

If you wish to register for an event or if you have any questions, please contact us by email: or phone: 902-648-2493.

We would also love to hear from you if you are interested in doing a presentation or workshop, etc. 

Please refer back to this section often as we will keep the Events Calendar updated throughout the year.  These types of events are also advertised on our social media channels (Facebook and Instagram).

We thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you at our events.
