Name of creator
The Frontenac Historic Foundation (FHF) was founded in 1973, as a non-profit organziation to promote the preservation of buidlings that contribute to the heritage of Kingston and surrounding region. Managed by a Board of Directors who are elceted by the members at an annual meeting, the FHF is financed by membership fees and investments from property sales, as well as tax-deductible bequests and financial contributions. The Foundation has acquired and restored a number of properties over the years. It currently owns an early commercial buiding in downtown Kingston. Its work includes the presentation of annual awards for heritage preservation in Kingstoin and the surrounding area, sponsorship of public talks and seminars, hosting workshops on practical aspects of heritage restoration, and assistance with the publication of books and articles on the region's built environment.
In 2002, as a result of declining membership, and in an effort pay more attention to marketing the Foundation's merits, as well as to promote its past accomplishments and future benefits to the residents of the community, and in order to differentiate it from the Kingston Historical Society, Ms. Jennifer McKendry presented a "Notice of Motion" propsoing to change the name from the Frontenac Historic Foundation to the Frontenac Heritage Foundation. After some debate, the membership approved this resolution at its Annual General Meeting in May of that year.
