Name of creator
Heritage Peterborough was first organized May 11, 1984 in the Board Room of Peterborough and Kawartha Tourist and Convention Bureau. The Peterborough and Kawartha Tourist and Convention Bureau, the Peterborough Historical Society and the Peterborough Architectural Conservation Advisory Committee joined together to form Heritage Peterborough out of a concern due to the lack of interest and publicity for Peterborough's heritage. Their aim was to encourage wide interest, research and awareness of 150 years of historical growth of the city and county. They did this through developing projects that would advertise Peterborough City and County to tourists and citizens. Projects such as a "lure piece" or glossy brochure with a map and small write-ups on various historical sites; calendars, placemats and walking and driving tours were developed to aid in the advertising. Funding for the projects came from the New Horizons programme, Health and Welfare Canada and the Peterborough City and County councils.
This fonds was created by Heritage Peterborough and was in the custody of Professor Elwood Jones, member of the Heritage Peterborough Publications sub-committee before it was donated to the Trent University Archives.

This fonds consists of minutes, correspondence, pamphlets, placemats and a booklet By Lake and By Lock produced by Heritage Peterborough to raise public awareness of history and heritage buildings in the city and county of Peterborough.
