Saskatchewan - Frenchman Butte Heritage Centre

Frenchman Butte, SK - The Frenchman Butte Museum is uniquely situated in a central location to many historical events and is very proud to have a large collection that reflects the history of the following: The Early Settlers; Canadian Railways; The Northwest Rebellion; Hudson's Bay Company/Fur Trade; North Saskatchewan River Highway; Carlton Trail; First Nations and Wolrd War I & II.

The museum is based upon a collection of guns, arrowheads and other pioneer artifacts gathered by the late Lloyd Furman, who spent many years collecting artifacts. Originally, it was housed in the restored CNR Station, but it quickly outgrew that space. As a result, a large quonset was erected - the Lloyd Furman Building. The site has continued to grow with additional buildings being added as needed.

The Frenchman Butte Museum first began in this building - an original building to this picturesque hamlet. It is manned by mannequin staff and houses a portion of the large collection discovered by the late Lloyd Furman. The restored CNR Station is now recognized as an official Heritage Building.
