Reconstructed Ukrainian Pioneer Village near Edmonton

To create the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village on Highway 16 east of Edmonton, buildings were brought from various places to build what appears to be a real historic working Ukrainian settlement.

  1. Thank you for this! I've been trying to figure out some family history stuff and tried to go the Village in late winter while in Edmonton but it wasn't yet open for the season. Good photographs!
