Living History Algoma

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging cultural activities that document and share with a wider public, the history of the Algoma region.

We believe in the power of arts and culture to creatively bring to life the stories that shape our rich history and development as a community, region, province and nation.

The roots of the LHA began in the non-profit Algoma 1812, which was established in 2008 to coordinate the 3 year activities marking the way of life and events of the Algoma region during the War of 1812.   At the wrap-up in 2015, Algoma 1812 was successfully reinvented as Living History Algoma (Algoma 1812).

LHA welcomes partnerships with individuals and organizations undertaking creative projects based on area history.  We are especially interested in projects that reach a wider public, with examples including walking tours, performances in all artistic genres, contributions to the Oral History of Sault Ste.Marie (a committee of LHA) and outreach presentations.
