In 1896, Scarborough celebrated the 100th anniversary of the settlement of Scarborough Township by building the Centennial Library. Despite its old age, the library is not in use today. It is now a storage room looked after by the pastor from the nearby church.
Scarborough Historical Museum hides in the Thomson Memorial Park on Brimley Road, an original farm field of Scarborough’s first settlers, away from the eyes of passersby. But they tell locals of immigration history of the past two centuries. Youth volunteers and history interpreters bring the past to life.
