Phase III of Heritage Inventory Launched with Open House


HIGH RIVER, AB: The Town of High River will be holding a public open house to launch Phase III of the Heritage Inventory Project on Thursday, Apr. 2 from 5-8 p.m. in the Munroe Barn at Sheppard Family Park (1201 5 Street S.E.). The third phase of the project will focus on mostly residential properties to the east of downtown High River.

“We are excited to be starting phase III of the project and to be learning more about the town’s beautiful historic properties,” said Sarah Mitchell, parks and culture coordinator for the Town. “Anyone wishing to learn more about the project, or wanting to share information about the initial properties, is encouraged to attend.”

As an initial step, the High River Heritage Advisory Board and consultants from Community Design Strategies have identified a preliminary list of over 70 sites that may qualify for final listing on the phase III inventory.

The public is invited to attend this first open house to not only learn about the project, but to also view photos of the properties and to assist with research by sharing any memories or information that may be relevant (former or original owners, significant events, etc.)

Staff from the Town of High River, Community Design Strategies, and Alberta Culture and Tourism will be present to answer questions regarding the project, as well as the heritage designation process and possible funding opportunities.
