Sundre & District Historical Society Celebrates 50 Years

The Sundre Pioneer Museum is celebrating 50 years of preserving and displaying community culture.

You can walk down memory lane at the world class Sundre Museum when the Sundre & District Historical Society celebrates 50 years this weekend.

Executive Director of the Sundre Pioneer Museum Jamie Marr says they will also be collecting input for their strategic plan for the next 50 years.

Marr adds back in the day the museum was seasonal and never operated in the winter.



Now it has grown to 4 acres with 8 buildings and the pioneer gallery as well as the newest exhibit The Chester Mjolsness World of Wildlife.

Marr says one of the unique parts of the 50th anniversary celebration is the community time capsule.



Marr says they will probably put the time capsule in the ground this year and they are deciding whether to open it up in 50 years or if people want it open earlier.

The Sundre Museum celebrates 50 years from 5 until 8pm on Saturday, September 15th. There is no admission for the short speeches, refreshments, interactive stations throughout the gallery, and tours.
