The Innisfail and District Historical Village located in Innisfail, Alberta, Canada on 52 Avenue and 42 Street (1 block west of the Hospital, between the local schools and Aquatic Center). It originated in 1970 with the purpose of preserving and housing the history of the Innisfail district.
The Village is governed by the Innisfail and District Historical Society, which was incorporated in 1970. It started with the donation of "The Spruces" by the W. Gibson family. This log home is the only remaining original stopping house between Calgary and Edmonton.
The Village is made up of eighteen buildings, displayed on 2 acres of land. These are furnished to interpret the history of the area up to the 1930s. There is a large display of farm machinery and a day use picnic area.
During off-season or after hours, the Village may be viewed by appointment. Admission is $3.00 per person or $15 per family. Children under 5 are free! Donations are always accepted. The village is also wheelchair accessible.
