History of the Langford Schoolhouse
The first Langford school was built in the early 1870s, one of several one-room schoolhouses that were built in the area to support the growing community surrounding Brantford. The original building was destroyed in a fire, but was rebuilt in 1896. In 1964, the school transitioned into a community centre, but the children left their mark. Their names remain etched into the building itself. The Langford Conservancy formed informally in 2010, taking over the care of the Langford Schoolhouse.
The Langford Conservancy incorporated in 2012 as a not for profit organization, continuing the vision of the past 140 years – to run this wonderful historic space as a community hub.
