Morning – Start your day by stepping into an authentic slice of Alberta’s western pioneer days at Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village.
There are more than 20 heritage buildings to see giving you an inside look at life on the prairies from the late 1800s to the 1940s. Check out the Antique Car barn to get a look at Model Ts and Model As, see the living quarters of the North West Mounted Police officers and a historic bakery and schoolhouse. Do a little shopping at the Country Store to buy a new pair of Canadian-made moccasins or hand-crafted quilted items.
Time your visit to the village for one of the many special events happening like the Southern Nights series, with a line up of improv theatre, live music and car shows.
