Preserving the

Roots of the Past

From an empty field, to a little Village nestled by the Icelandic river.

The Arborg Heritage Village has been in existence since 1999 when a grassroots organization held its first meeting February 15 in the town office to gauge support for the idea. The Village became incorporated in May 1999, and it soon obtained charitable status. We've moved 14 buildings on site, and we're open to the public for tours during seasonal hours. Our three summer students offer tours - and in 2016 they toured over 1000 which included six international bus tours. On average our tours are an hour and a half to two hours. Shorter tours are also available.  

To date, the Arborg and District Multicultural Heritage Village has advanced through strong commitment, dedication, and determination of the board, community and local government.

Our Vision Statement:

"Present and future generations preserving the roots of our past"

Our Mission Statement:

"We are committed to providing an interpretive centre dedicated to preserving and showcasing the multicultural history of the area in a working village depicting the past, present, and future of a rural Manitoba Farming community."
