<h4>The Canmore NWMP Barracks was built in 1893, making it one of the oldest buildings in the community. Drop into the Restoration Open House to learn about the restoration of the building firsthand from those involved in the restoration of the building over a six-year period. Examine the volumes of meticulous research that guided the work of over 130 community volunteers, and hear what some of the learnings were from the project.</h4>
The Canmore NWMP Barracks Restoration Project was a true community heritage project. Vi Sandford, co-chair of the restoration committee stated to a local news reporter just shortly before the Barracks’ Grand Opening on July 16, 1995, “It’s one of those few projects that every segment of the community—from school kids to seniors to the Town Council—has participated in, and everyone involved has found it rewarding. It’s quite wonderful.“
After visiting with members of the original restoration team, head outside to learn from members of our Heritage Garden volunteer team how the grounds are being maintained today, and to pick up your package of heritage flower seeds.
Light refreshments will be served throughout the day.
