Heritage Village is officially open!
We have a collection of buildings, some dating back a century, each one inviting visitors to experience a different aspect of Fort McMurray’s past. Walk through history and explore the stories of those who came before. It’s a vibrant and captivating destination, and an essential part of our community.
Heritage Shipyard is OPEN for the season!
For decades, Fort McMurray was a transportation hub. In the spring, rail cars would arrive to unload their wares, which were then transferred to ships that traveled up the Athabasca River, distributing goods to remote communities as far north as the Arctic. Heritage Shipyard celebrates and preserves this essential part of our past with historical vessels, two train cars, a collection of artifacts and the Jack “Torchy” Peden Centre and Gift Shop.
Our School Programs allow students in the elementary grades to learn about our history, while being immersed in it. They also have the fun of experiencing an ‘old-fashioned’ school, with games and craft time from yesteryear.
“We had a fantastic morning. Thank you for having us! The presenters did a fantastic job. They knew their information very well, presented it to the students in a manner in which they could understand and they were very well organized. I am so impressed and cant wait to come back next spring :)))))))”
Thank you again
