Currently, YCHT oversees three museums, a research library and archives, four historic properties, one replica building, and the Murals of York.
Via these resources, YCHT can interpret more than 250 years of York's history on all levels (political, cultural, social, religious, industrial, agricultural) and in all educational formats (lectures, exhibits, publications, programming, online).
The Police Heritage Museum grew out of one officer's desire to know more about the history of the York City Police Department. The officer's large personal collection of law enforcement artifacts, and the knowledge he gained during his search, became the impetus for the museum. Late in 1994 a core group of individuals met to discuss the incorporation of a police museum.
