The Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village depicts Ukrainian settlement in east-central Alberta from 1892 to 1930 and portrays the struggles early pioneers faced as they turned forest into farmland. With more than 30 restored buildings, as well as costumed interpreters, wagon rides, and farm animals, the village is a fascinating place to explore.
This living history museum allows you to experience the region's past by visiting farmsteads, three Eastern rite churches, a fully functioning grain elevator, a blacksmith shop, a sod hut, and a townsite. A plethora of special events are held each summer at this multiple-award-winning provincial historic site. Bring a picnic or enjoy locally produced Ukrainian food.
