Saskatoon WDM to Build New Exhibit on Boomtown

The addition of the Edwards Funeral Home, with its roots dating back over 100 years, is in keeping with the Boomtown theme. Like museums everywhere, the WDM strives to present historically accurate exhibits – even when the subject matter may be complex or difficult. Dealing with death and grief is a universal experience, and death was an ever-present reality in 1910 Boomtown, as it is today.
