About Us

The Vulcan and District Historical Society began when a group decided to write a history book about the area. The first book, Wheat Country-a History of Vulcan and District, was published in 1973. An update was published in 1988. Wheat Country II is available from the historical society for $10 plus shipping. A great bargain! You can pick one up at the Museum, the Archives or order by telephone or email. Wow-for Canada 150, we are offering this book for only $1.50 plus shipping. Our birthday present to share with you.

Since that time, the Society has been actively promoting preservation and recognition of our past. The Society also operates the Vulcan and District Museum and the Vulcan and District Archives. The historical society may be reached by mail at Box 104, Vulcan, AB, T0L 2B0, by phone or fax at 403-485-2168 or by email at vdhs@telus.net. Those who have questions about Vulcan history or items you would like to donate to the museum or the archives can reach us through any of these. New members are welcomed!
