Experience the grit of our Doukhobor pioneers who fled their homeland and settled in the Blaine Lake area of Saskatchewan, Canada.Plan a visit
Closed for the season
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.
We are excited about this summer’s outdoor adventure, Season of Colours. Ten areas of historical significance including a new patio area overlooking the river valley called Peter The Lordly Verigin. Lots of tasty eats and refreshments. Something for everyone. Come home to history Saskatchewan and enjoy the summer with us.
This season we are going to feature a true test of time. The new patio area overlooking the river valley has a historical story, named after Peter “The Lordly” Verigin. We will be serving food and refreshments every Saturday in July. Come home to history.
Someone once told me that passion begins with abundance. The Doukhobor Dugout House has both. We are hosting a flavourful Doukhobor Bread sale, October 23, 2021. All proceeds go towards the Doukhobor Prayer Home (Donna’s legacy project). Support local. Support heritage. Order now.
