About this Walk

Join us at the Pioneer Memorial Building, designated a Historical Resource by the City of Calgary in 2009 for the log building architecture, location and the historic relevance to Southern Alberta Settlement History. Note our beautiful views and historical interpretive signage on the grounds.

At our Pioneer Memorial Building you will get to see a “Mini-display” of 144 eight by ten photos mounted on four, tri-fold panels and several easels displaying larger images. Our Jane’s Walk takes you down into a little of the river valley. Find out about Lindsay’s Folly, bull trains along the original Macleod Trail and our tumultuous relationship with the Elbow River over the years.

The Southern Alberta Pioneers and Their Descendants’ (SAPD’s) membership is composed of those persons who were residents of that part of Canada now known as the province of Alberta lying south of Township 40 prior to or on December 31, 1890. The Memorial Building was built in 1955 as a memory of those pioneer years.

Free parking is available on the east side of the Pioneer Memorial Building.
