The Interpretive Centre
Marvel at our various exhibits that depict what life was like 100 years ago. The interpretive centre is home to our old fashioned storefronts, CPR display, as well as many other exhibits.
This was the house that Bjorn and Lara Sigvaldason and their 16 children called home for over 50 years. Witness how the family lived and admire many artifacts that were original to the family.
St. Demetrius Ukrainian Catholic Church
This Provincial Historic building is a must see! Construction on this building began over one hundred years ago. Originally located in the Bjarmi area 4 miles north of Arborg, this church has most of its original artifacts including an all-glass candle chandelier. The church has been re-sanctioned after restoration so church services can be held in it again.
This Beautiful Polish home was moved on site in the summer of 2009. Many of the Kowalski family volunteered hundreds of hours of tender loving care into the restoration. Come admire all their hard work.
