More Southern Alberta Southern Alberta

Southern Alberta’s rural charms, lakeside villages and western history make for all kinds of adventures you just couldn’t experience anywhere else. ● Cowboy culture: Hop on a horse for a day or three. You’ll see firsthand what indigenous people, early pioneers and ranchers saw in this part of the world when it was still a wild, wild west. ● Theatre: Dinosaurs and Jesus? Yeah, it happens in the world-renowned Canadian Badlands Passion Play. ● Go local: Hit a rural or urban farmers market for local produce and grass-fed beef, pickles and preserves, artisan crafts and homegrown entertainment.

St. Margaret's Church Historic Site

Elkwater, Alberta

St. Margaret's Church was built in 1907 and it's currently the oldest church building still in use, south and east of Medicine Hat. In the early 1940's the church was used a schoolhouse. In 1992 this historic building received an extensive restoration. While the church was originally built as Church of England (Anglican/Episcopalian), it is now operated on a non-denominational basis, administered by a non-profit society. The small church, which seats 32, is a living memorial to all those who helped settle the area. The church is kept open year-round and attracts nearly 1,600 visitors each year from around the world.
