Name of creator
The Peterborough Horticultural Society was established April 9, 1861 by a few gentlemen interested in horticulture. Within a few weeks time the new horticulture club was registered in Toronto. Rev. Vincent Clementi was the first president. The first exhibition, which consisted of exhibits of flowers, fruits and vegetables, was held September 20, 1861. The first two day show was held in 1872. In 1885 the Society, with the help of the Peterborough Council, started a town beautification project in the Court House park. In 1898 the first lawn and garden competition was held. Eventually the Society joined with other societies to form the Ontario Horticultural Society. There were junior members as well as the adult members.
