The Port Hope Branch of the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario is one of the largest and most active branches in the province. The mission of the ACO is to help preserve buildings and structures of architectural merit and to protect places of natural beauty. The executive of our local branch has worked hard to follow this mission, led by the example of many dedicated volunteers who have gone before us. Because of the work of our local branch, Port Hope can now boast one of the finest inventories of historically important homes and buildings in Canada.
Every year this active branch of volunteers raises and then donates tens of thousands of dollars for the cause of historical architectural preservation. Our association also looks after the cost of maintaining the still active C.N. train station, a local, turn of the century stone building in the heart of the community. We administer the "A.K. Sculthorpe Heritage Trades Scholarship Fund" set up to invest in the future of our heritage in Northumberland County by offering scholarships to local residents enrolling in the Algonquin College Heritage Institute. As well, the Port Hope ACO Heritage Fund actively solicits heritage restoration projects to finance, offering attractive financial terms and grants for qualifying projects.
The Board of Directors of the Port Hope Branch of the ACO meet the first Thursday of every month. If you or your delegation would like to be put on our agenda please contact our office at 905-885-7929. Our branch publishes "ACO Matters", a branch newsletter four times per year. If you have announcements, comments or opinions you would like published or if you would like to advertise your business or service, contact the ACO Matters editor.
