Landmarks & Buildings Attractions & Entertainment

There’s no denying Albertans are good at building new things. Take a look the glittering downtowns of the big cities. The structures from the past tell stories of Alberta’s booms and busts. ● Now you know: Sandstone was the building material of choice a century ago. Check it out in the Beaux Arts style provincial Legislature Building in Edmonton and throughout Calgary’s downtown. ● Ask the pros: The Historical Society of Alberta makes sure nobody forgets the good old days and the stories behind heritage buildings. Check out their Alberta playlist, especially on Heritage Day in August.

Drumheller, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

Drumheller's Little Church, seating 10,000 people - 6 at a time. This church was first erected by local contractor Trygve Seland, in cooperation with the Ministerial Association in 1968 and was reconstructed by inmates of the Drumheller Institution in 1991. It was designed as a place of worship and mediation and not just a tourist attraction. Located on the North side of the North Dinosaur Trail between the Royal Tyrrell Museum and the Golf Course.

Fort McMurray Heritage Shipyard

Fort McMurray, Alberta

For decades, Fort McMurray was a transportation hub. In the spring, railcars would arrive to unload their wares, which were then transferred to ships that travelled up the Athabasca River, distributing goods to remote communities as far north as the Arctic. Heritage Shipyard celebrates and preserves this essential part of the region's past with historical vessels, two train cars, a collection of artifacts and the Jack “Torchy” Peden Centre and gift shop.
