Located on Wabamun Lake’s west end, Seba Beach has been a lakeside retreat since 1906, when the first homesteadersR. P. (Perly) Cull and Arthur Hoveyarrived from Quebec. Looking for an area with good fishing and hunting, they chose the west side of Wabamun Lake. You can see their original cabin, called Massawippi Cottage, at the corner of 5th Street South and 1st Avenue.

The Seba Beach Museum and Heritage Wall is a charming and well-laid-out museum that includes a fascinating collection of pioneer artifacts, such as a boat motor, early ice skates, regatta trophies, and photographs. You will find the 1946 All Saints Anglican Church and the original Seba Beach village office, as well as Seba Beach history depicted on the Heritage Wall. A museum pamphlet includes a list of historical sites you can walk to, including the 1916 YWCA hostel, the Silver Dollar Dance Hall, and Chummy’s Store and Dance Hall, built before 1924.
