Relive the Doukhobor Past

In 1899, the sweep of a religious ideal came to the wide prairies of western Canada. Russian Doukhobors fled their homeland and settled in the Blaine Lake area of Saskatchewan, Canada. They adapted to the harshness of their environment by digging into the North Saskatchewan River ravine, where they built a dugout house, in the style of houses in the Caucasus.
