  • Mississauga's Heritage Source

    Heritage Mississauga, also known as the Mississauga Heritage Foundation was founded in 1960, by a small group of volunteers. Known then as the Toronto Township Historical Foundation, this charitable organization supported the move of the Bradley House to its present location and worked to open the home as the area’s first Museum.

    In 1994 the City of Mississauga officially took over the running of the Museum Complex and Heritage Mississauga took on the role as the only independent organization devoted to city-wide heritage matters.


    From its offices at "The Grange", the historic Robinson-Adamson House (1921 Dundas Street West, Mississauga), Heritage Mississauga provides the community with a comprehensive Heritage Resource Centre. The Centre offers a number of services to the community including:


    • Heritage Research & Publications

    • Research Assistance

    • Outreach Presentations

    • Heritage Resource Centre Library

    • Publications

    • Heritage and Art Exhibits

    • Guided and Self-Guided Heritage Tours
