A number of interested individuals began meeting in the Fall of 2011 toward the establishment of a Heritage Centre and Museum for the Watrous area. As of March 5, 2012, the Town of Watrous established the Board tasked with preserving the history of Watrous & area, and with the goal of putting up a facility to house artifacts and archives.
And so at present the Watrous Heritage Centre exists as an online "Virtual Heritage Centre" on this website, preserving documents & pictures, with the hope of eventually housing them in a brand new facility at Watrous, SK. Visit the section of this website referred to as "The Plan" to view progress on plans for the new facility.
The Hayter Family of Watrous has donated a large portion of land to the Heritage Centre on Hwy #2 between John's Plate and the Co-op Gas Bar. Members of the Board along with Marty & Dwight Hayter, braved a high wind chill on Saturday, November 23/13 for this photo. See the above news release for more information.
