Yorkton WDM - Story of People

The Yorkton WDM chronicles the stories of immigrants to Saskatchewan. From a display of an attic filled with toys to an authentic log home inside the Museum, from the giant Twin City to the Morris rod weeder, exciting exhibits will help you gain insight into the undaunted spirit of the people who came to this land.

Heritage Day February 6  

This year’s theme, as designated by Heritage Canada The National Trust, is Main Street: At the Heart of the Community. The buildings that line main streets across the country hold volumes of social and economic history. Along with new developments, this varied landscape weaves a story of past accomplishments and future prospects. Annual partners in this event include the City of Yorkton historian and Heritage Advisory Sub-Commission, as well as the Yorkton Chapter of the Saskatchewan Genealogy Society.
