St. Mary's: A History of the Church and its People

Sunday,  September 8th from 2:00 -4:00 pm

Did Prince Albert chose a penitentiary over a university? Fred Payton answers this question as well as providing a history of St May’s Church, the Anglican diocese and Emmanuel College.

  • Learn about the people associated with Prince Albert and the church: James Isbister, Thomas Osborn Davis family, Minnie Jones, Thomas Baker family and more.
  • Find out more about the victims of the Riel Resistance and the conflict with Almighty Voice.

St. Mary’s Church is located just west of the penitentiary on Highway 302.

Summer Exhibit - One Canada: Diefenbaker's Vision

The “One Canada: Diefenbaker’s Vision” exhibit can be viewed at the Historical Museum starting Monday, July 15th and continuing to the end of the summer season. This exhibit is now closed.

This exhibit explores the goals of Canada’s 13th Prime Minister to create an equitable country that derives strength from diversity. The purpose of the exhibit is to spark conversations about nationalism, identity, human rights and how we as Canadians view our country as a unified nation. Part of the exhibit includes lesser-known stories about Diefenbaker’s life.
