Central Alberta Historical Society

Chartered in 1995, the Central Alberta Historical Society (CAHS) covers the region from Ponoka in the north to Olds in the south, and from the B.C. border to the Saskatchewan border.  Each year from September to May, CHS presents an exciting series of historical lectures and special events ranging from period Christmas dinners to visits to historic ranches. We have become recognized for our well organized four-day summer bus tours to exotic prairie and mountain locations. Each May, the CAHS celebrates local heritage and history through the annual Central Alberta Historical Festival; partners such as museums and historic sites present a variety of family oriented events.

CAHS is a chapter of the Historical Society of Alberta, established in 1907 by an act of the Alberta Legislature to encourage the study and preservation of Canadian and Alberta history.

The overriding object of CAHS is “to promote and publish historical works, develop education and programming activities to encourage membership in the Society and the performance of its objects.” 

Membership in the CAHS includes a membership in the historical Society of Alberta, the CAHS newsletter and History
Now, the newsletter of the Historical Society of Alberta, which covers history across the province. The glossy quarterly
magazine, Alberta History, is available to members for a reasonable subscription rate.

Tips to Unlock the Past with CARMN
• Find relics of the fur trade in this land of the buffalo robe and
beaver pelt. Ask to see these in the museum you are visiting.
Visit an original trading post store, such as the one at Bragg
Creek next to the Stoney Reserve or a stopping house on the
Calgary-Edmonton trail.
