Covering three acres in the heart of the city of Fort Saskatchewan, this historic site offers a fascinating glimpse into the past. Eight heritage buildings with furniture dating back to 1875, a herd of sheep and traditional shepherding activities outside the main gates are just the start of the daily attractions for visitors and residents alike.
A Guided Tour of the Past
You don’t have to know a lot of history before you come to enjoy this museum and heritage site, established in 1958. Fun and fact-filled guided tours are available throughout the day, taking you through the entire grounds. You’ll start at the Warden’s House, and move on to see an old schoolhouse, blacksmith shop and machinery shed among other buildings while on the tour. The Kulak house offers a fascinating glimpse into the typical lifestyle of new immigrants at the turn of the century, while the Doctor’s Residence shows what was considered upscale living back in the early 1900s.
Study the Past While Creating Your Future
Any of the buildings of the entire grounds can be booked for private events. The Church and the Courthouse make great locations for weddings, and other buildings work well for receptions. The Fort Saskatchewan Museum and Heritage Site is a fun and unusual setting for birthdays, company picnics, family reunions, daycare outings, retirement parties or other gatherings.
A Memorable Day Trip
Pack a picnic lunch and enjoy it under the gazebo in the picnic area alongside the mighty North Saskatchewan River, which flows serenely past this picturesque heritage site. There’s always something new to discover here!
