Anthony Henday Museum



Located on Main Street (2503 20th Street) across from the park. The museum is housed in the former Delburne CN Train station. Our focal point is local history from the early days of Anthony Henday, a servant of the Hudson's Bay Co. who passed through this area in 1754, to present day. also on site, a CN caboose, CN water tank building and the original Wood Lake School dating from 1906.

This water tower was rescued by the Anthony Henday Historical Society in 1983 and moved to the Anthony Henday Museum on the south side of 20th Street at 25th Avenue. Notice in the pictures that the tower still has its indicator ball on the rod atop the building. The position of the ball on the rod indicated the amount of water the tank held. The museum is well worth seeing, especially for train buffs, as it has this station, an old wooden water tower, a CNR caboose, a Fairmont Speeder and more…

The Anthony Henday Historical Society (Museum) is a long standing organization that is an asset to our Village and District. We would like the public to know that they are always welcome to come and visit and even participate in the affairs of the Museum.

Our membership is aging and declining. Thus, we are looking for new members to become engaged with us. There are many community leaders among us that with their fresh ideas would certainly bolster both our spirits and engagements.

Memberships are $20 a year and meetings are held the third Tuesday of each month.
