From The Pinhey's Point Foundation Collections
Collection Overview

The artifact collections of the Pinhey’s Point Foundation include personal and domestic materials related to the Pinhey family, from their life in England and earliest days at Horaceville to well into the 20th century with the 3rd and 4th generations.  Items associated with the wider Pinhey family circle, neighbouring gentry families on the riverfront, such as the Monks, and more generally the history of the former Township of March, are also represented.  Some items were always at the house, some have come to the Foundation through donation by family descendants and others, and new acquisitions are added to the collections each year.  They are used by the PPF as a research collection, in room settings and in exhibitions to complement the City’s interpretive programs at Horaceville. More about the artifact collections will gradually be added to these Web pages.
