Heritage Walking Tour

A Walk Through History

Published by the Gravelbourg and District Museum


"Founded as an outpost of French Canada by a priest from Quebec via New York City, settled in part by Franco Americans, endowed in the earliest beginnings with institutions whose architecture and aims strove for the grand scale, there is even today something uncommon about Gravelbourg. Certainly it cuts an uncommon outline on the prairie horizon where earth and sky unite, dissolve and disappear into infinity, as they do nowhere else in the world."

"This interactive map about Gravelbourg's past is designed to provide only a glimpse into the character of our founding fathers - their spirit, courage and their tireless energy. This sense of community still exists in Gravelbourg and is a key component in the continued revitalization of the rural landscape in southern Saskatchewan."

Louis Stringer, Chairperson Gravelbourg & District Museum Board of Trustees


The Gravelbourg and District Museum would like to express its thanks to the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation for their financial support of this project.

Heritage Walking Tour Guide Books are available to purchase at selected businesses in Gravelbourg.
