Pincher Creek and District Historical Society Receives Technology

Pincher Creek and District Historical Society Receives 3 Computers and 3 Laptops

Pincher Creek and District Historical Society is a non-profit heritage organization that runs the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village in Pincher Creek, AB. The facility covers 6 acres and houses 30 authentic heritage buildings displaying over 30000 local area artifacts. The mandate is to collect, preserve and display the history of South West Alberta for the visiting public.

As a hub for tourism, Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village is home to the visitor information Centre, Gift Shop, and a Western Canadian frontier village with 27 heritage cabins and two museum buildings filled with intriguing artifacts.

The Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village was established in 1966, and was intended to preserve the area’s vibrant pioneer heritage. Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village is an outdoor heritage facility. Visitors are able to walk directly into any of the historic buildings and view the artifacts, which are displayed openly. The open concept and self-guided museum means you are free to wander through six acres of beautiful gardens, including a large community garden area.

The majority of the buildings in the Village are authentic, restored, and furnished with period furniture.  Artifacts and everyday tools used by the owners and inhabitants of that time are displayed in each building. The history is not roped off or preserved behind glass. Most importantly, we do request that you respect these artifacts.

ERA was thrilled to donate three computers and three laptops to Pincher Creek and District Historical Society. These donated computers are required to assist in digitizing catalogued artifact collections, administration and accounting, historic and educational programming, marketing, inventory archive and to establish future upgrades and maintenance plans. They will be used to replace the existing and out dated inventory of computers which were originally donated.
