Municipal Heritage Survey

In 2011, the Museum, the Heritage Buildings Committee and the Town of Peace River hired Donald Luxton and Associates with a grant from the Alberta Municipal Heritage Partnership Program.
Through this grant and the hard work of our committee, we were able to study 10 historic buildings in Peace River. The link for the report can be seen here. (NOTE: It is a large pdf document and may need sometime to download fully.)

This year, the Museum and Committee would like to keep the momentum going! We are asking you to suggest buildings that are at least 50 years old that hold a historic importance to our community. It may be the design of the building, the person(s) who lived there, the business(es) which operated there or a specific architectural feature, which gives you the sense of history of our community.

Preserving a diversity of structures in our community not only conserves and showcases the historical evolution of Peace River, but it also makes our neighborhoods more appealing and engenders community pride.

If you have suggestions, the survey can be filled out here. Paper surveys will also be available around town and can be mailed to or dropped off at the Museum at 10302 99th Street Peace River, Alberta  T8S 1K1.

If you have any questions, please call the Museum at 780-624-4261.
