HIGHLAND BARN HISTORY
The magnificent 3,320 square foot, two story “Highland Barn” began its four-year construction in 1928. Its main purpose was a horse & hay barn, as well as a place to raise chickens & pigs. All the fir & cedar wood for the build was hauled in by train from British Columbia & unloaded by the wealthy Mr. Smith & his locally hired hands down at the same train tracks you can currently see half a mile east of the lodge. Materials were then re-loaded onto a horse drawn wagon & brought to the barn site here in the yard where they were unloaded by hand yet again. The concrete foundation is original as is the rest of the barn – only the shingles & a few floorboards have been replaced. Feel free to tour the loft & stables in the barn.
The barn has been brought into present day use as a wedding venue starting with Cory’s brother’s ceremony in 2018. A new “Barn Bar” was born from one of the original chop feed rooms simply by removing some boards. Enjoy a bevy at the bar. Take some pictures. Experience Canadian history and prairie life first hand.
