On 31 March 1987, a group of 35 to 40 people interested in the history of Lobo Township met to discuss the role they could have in preserving the history of Lobo Township. From the discussion it was agreed to form the Lobo Township Historical Society. It was suggested that if there was enough interest and funding available a committee would be created for the purpose of publish a Lobo Township history book.
The history book committee was comprised of senior citizens who could then apply for the New Horizons Program under the Department of Health and Welfare. The application for the New Horizons grant was submitted on 15 June 1988. A ten-thousand-dollar grant was obtained, and the work started. According to a history written by Carol Small, volunteer and Executive Member of the Book Committee, “The Lobo Township Heritage Group had two goals which were:
To publish a book about Lobo Township history of the highest caliber so that municipalities in Middlesex County would also take part in the project; and
- to establish an archives for all the materials that were copied and saved from the project. “ (Small)
The book entitled The Heritage of Lobo 1820-1990 was officially launched in December 1990.
"On January 20, 1999 Lobo Township Historical Society amended its constitution to include the three former townships of Lobo, London and Delaware. It expanded Historical Society was renamed Middlesex Centre Historical Society.
In 2013 the Middlesex Centre Archives was established with the support of the Municipality of Middlesex Centre. Residual profits from the sales of the Heritage of Lobo were transferred to the Middlesex Centre Archives in June 2013 bringing the goals of the Group to fruition." (Small)
