The Commemorative Plaque Program celebrates Stouffville’s built heritage. By recognizing heritage properties, we are collectively contributing to an awareness of place and story in our community.  You can now apply for a Historic Property Commemorative Plaque for a home or business to recognize its heritage value.  Available to owners of both residential and/or commercial properties, this program is designed to highlight built heritage in our community.

The oval shaped plaques (16 inches by 11 inches) made of exterior grade high-pressure laminate fused with anti-UV plaques and graffiti resistant materials are both attractive and long lasting. This plaque will incorporate the name of the original builder or property owner, construction date and Town Crest. Historic Property Commemorative Plaques are $450.00 plus tax.

How to Apply:

  1. Complete the Historic Property Plaque Application Form
  2. All applications will be assessed quarterly by the Heritage Advisory Committee
  3. Once approved, staff will contact you with next steps

For assistance, email the museum to book a research appointment.
