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 history of the Town of Stony Plain, the City of Spruce Grove and Parkland County.
One of our feature buildings and the hub of all our activity is the Old Red Brick School House, built in 1925 as the senior high school. The schoolhouse features the main reception, Public Art Gallery, Artisan Gift Shop, Settler’s Cabin, Wild Rose Library, local history and Western Canadian pioneer life exhibit, and the Wheet Nothings Gluten Free Diner. With its quaint brick exterior, old-fashioned doors, and surrounding flower beds, The Old Red Brick School building makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding and reunion photos.
Alongside the Red Brick School House stands the Oppertshauser House, built in 1910. The Oppertshauser house hosts our museum collection from 1890 to 1930s and reflects what a home would have looked like 100 years ago. For a quick virtual tour of the Oppertshauser House and the Red Brick building, check out the Youtube video by Canadian History Ehx: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dut8sDwqQG8
