History defines where we come from and the many influences that have affected us.  Our past links us to the places and people that have molded us into the present.                                         

So it was appropriate that the 1903 TH&B (Toronto, Hamilton, & Buffalo) Train Station was acquired in 1993 and restored by the skilled and dedicated volunteers of the West Lincoln Historical Society. This was accomplished by using the profits from their published book  “West Lincoln Our Links With The Past”, also generous donations from local organizations, businesses and individuals. 

The Smithville Train  Station has been restored  to its original beauty and was designated as a historical building.  It is now used as a research centre  called the West Lincoln Archives with many family histories, and old records.

The Archives are open to the public two days a week.
