Welcome To The Cobalt Historical Society Web Site
The Cobalt Historical Society is a non-profit corporation located in Cobalt, Ontario, Canada. Our mandate is to act as an umbrella organization for the preservation and development of the remaining mine properties, equipment and artifacts that illustrate the important role that the Cobalt Mining Camp has played in the development of the mining industry in Ontario and in the development of Northern Ontario.

Some of our activities include:
- the dissemination of heritage information as it relates to the Cobalt Mining Camp.

- the development of a participative membership program
- fundraising for short and long-term programs focusing on the preservation and development of the Heritage Silver Trail and the Cobalt Mining Camp as significant historical sites and tourist attractions.
