For nearly 60 years, ACO Port Hope has stood for values and architecturally significant buildings for future generations to use and enjoy. We believe that our heritage structures and landscapes are more than just a connection to the past, they are timeless, attractive and enduring, and never go out of style. They enhance well-being, reduce environmental waste, and provide strong economic and social benefits. We do not constantly race toward, or strive endlessly for what is next, rather we are appreciating what has come before, so we can collaborate with others to build an inspiring and sustaining dream of a better community, and create the heritage of the future. This is why ACO Port Hope exists, this is the essence that we believe in and wish to conserve.
The mission of ACO Port Hope is to help preserve buildings and structures of architectural merit and to protect places of natural beauty in and around the municipality of Port Hope.
