Coyote Flats wins National Award!

The Coyote Flats Oral History Project is the winner of the 2015 Governor General’s History Award for Excellence in Community Programming! The award was presented by His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, at Rideau Hall on October 16, 2015.

For more details:




Southern Alberta has a rich history, filled with inventors, collectors, pioneers, bootleggers and more. This collection of history does not simply include pictures and the items used during those times. Coyote Flats Pioneer Village is  an assembly of buildings used by the people who shaped our history. Through the collection of buildings, artifacts and stories, the history of the region’s early settlers lives on . Walk the streets and experience the history written about in books and witness the activities that kept our ancestors busy throughout their days.

The Coyote Flats Pioneer Village also has a very large collection of tractors spanning the entire history of Alberta’s agricultural development. This industry is the foundation to Alberta’s success as a province. See the very tractors that plowed the fields and cultivated today’s thriving industry.

Welcome to our Village!

  1. Hi there, I was just wondering what it would cost to rent for my wedding photographs? I’m getting married November 7th of this year.

    • Hi Eva; congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and thanks for your inquiry.

      For formal wedding pictures we charge $ 100, but the museum is yours – especially at that time of the year…

      Please call ahead to confirm, just so we can have someone on-site to meet and great you.

    Are you requiring any volunteers and what is required of them?

    • Hello, Marshall!

      Volunteers are always needed, so “come on down”!

      No requirements, really: you tell us what you like to do, what hours you are available, and we work it out from there…
      I am usually here from 9 AM to 4:30 MON-FRI.

    Good morning…

    My name is Gerald…I’m the Activity Coordinator for a senior facility. I would like to know if you’re open in September? I would like to bring a group of about 12 & need to know if you’re wheelchair accessible. Also do you serve food & have a space to eat. Thank you.


    • Hello, Gerald! Thank you for your inquiry; yes we love to host seniors’ tours. Probably half the museum is wheelchair accessible. What we’ve done in the past is have two smaller groups, and when the folks are getting a little tired of walking, we actually drive the bus through the village, with a tour guide narrating the buildings and sights that are just outside the windows. I will call you momentarily as well — we’ll see you in September. PIETER

    Looking to track down a copy of the history of Coyote Flats. My relatives are from Billings township Manitoulin Island and relocated to the Coyote Flats area in 1910. The Foster Brothers remained there into the 1980’s. They were my grandmothers brothers. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 416-629-2890 Thanks in advance looking forward to visiting your museum next year BP

    • Hello, Brian; we have two books for sale; one is the history of Coyote Flats museum (put out in 2016, which has some information on early settlers) and the other is a book called ‘Coyote Flats, Vol. II’, which has a certain amount of history on early settlers, the area, etc. It was published in 1976.

      Each book is $ 25 CDN.

      Hope that Helps! PIETER
