THINGS TO DO AND SEE

Explore the History of the
Saskatchewan Doukhobors

When you arrive at the site, you will be greeted by persons in period costume, as the settlers would have been.

Your greeter in Doukhobor costume will provide you with a map brochure to begin your walk to the ten areas of historical significance:

Doukhobor Dugout House SK

Bread, salt and water symbolize our basic principle:

“Toil and peaceful life.”

This represents the basic staff of life, life symbols, essentials of life, and the spirit of sharing of hospitality.

Costume and the ambiance will be true to tradition of the people who came here at the end of the 19th century. Doukhobor Bread is available to purchase and enjoy at home!

Come and enjoy the peacefulness and beauty, and be intrigued by this little-known bit of Saskatchewan history.
