Frog Lake Historic Site

Frog Lake, Alberta

The Frog Lake Historic Site is situated amid the gently rolling hills of east-central Alberta. It is a quiet, contemplative place now, but more than a century ago it was the scene of one of the most violent and tragic episodes in Alberta’s history. The Frog Lake Historic Site has been designated both a Provincial Historic Resource and a National Historic Site. It features a commemorative cairn, a small cemetery containing the remains of some of those killed at the site and an interpretive trail with panels exploring the historic context of the uprising at Frog Lake.
