Step back in time to explore the history of the Innisfail area

The Innisfail and District Historical Village located in Innisfail, Alberta, Canada on 52 Avenue and 42 Street (1 block west of the Hospital, between the local schools and Aquatic Center). It originated in 1970 with the purpose of preserving and housing the history of the Innisfail district and began with the donation of “The Spruces” by the W. Gibson family. This log home is the only remaining original stopping house between Calgary and Edmonton.

The Village is made up of eighteen buildings, displayed on 2 acres of land. These are furnished to interpret the history of the area up to the 1930s. There is a large display of farm machinery and a day-use picnic area.
