Help Reconstruct the Blockhouse and Church!

The Nisbet Church and the Blockhouse are some of the oldest buildings in Saskatchewan and the oldest buildings in Prince Albert.  The Nisbet Church was built as a combined school and church in 1867.  The Blockhouse was used to house military equipment and was part of the defenses erected around the Presbyterian Church during the 1885 Batoche area conflict.  The buildings were moved from Kinsmen Park last year due to their deteriorating condition. Read more about these buildings.

Nisbet Church

Funds raised by this campaign will be used to move and reconstruct the buildings on the riverfront near the Historical Museum.  As well as replacing some logs that are rotten from age, concrete flooring and new roofs are needed.

To help, please donate using our GoFundMe page or contact the museum at 306.764.2992.  Donations in any amount are welcomed; donations over $20 will be issued a tax receipt.

Blockhouse

All museums are closed as of August 30th, 2019 and will reopen in May 2020.

Museum tours are available outside the summer season. Call 306 764-2992 to book a tour.
