The Multicultural Heritage Centre has been preserving and promoting the history of Stony Plain for over 40 years. We seek to engage local residents, businesses, governments, community organizations and visitors as we record, promote and celebrate the agricultural heritage, regional cultural roots and historic values of the Town of Stony Plain, the City of Spruce Grove and Parkland County.
One of our feature buildings is the Old Red Brick School House, built in 1925 as the senior high school, this building is the hub of all activity. The school house features the main reception, Public Art Gallery, Artisan Store, Homesteader’s Kitchen, Settler’s Cabin, Wild Rose Library and our living museum which reflects local history and Western Canadian pioneer life. The Old Red Brick School building is often used in wedding and reunion photos as the brick and old fashioned doors enhanced by beautiful flower beds make this iconic building a breath-taking backdrop.
While you’re at the Centre, a visit to the Homesteader’s Kitchen is a must. Our Homesteader’s Kitchen is licensed and is famous for fresh bread, homemade soup and our many daily varieties of pies. The kitchen celebrates multiculturalism with monthly family style feasts that take you on a culinary journey from appetizer to dessert. During the summer you can dine inside or bask in the sun on our patio.
Alongside the Old Red Brick School House stands the Oppertshauser House, built in 1910. Currently under renovations, this will soon be the site of our expanded museum. The Oppertshauser House will be turned into a home with early 1900s artifacts to depict the tools and setting of an early settler’s home life.
The Centre offers many programs and events throughout the year. If you would like to find out more or be kept informed follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Like us on Facebook or sign up for our email newsletter below.
