Supporting the Lacombe & District Historical Society is even easier!

The Lacombe & District Historical Society is a Non-Profit Society and Registered CRA Charity which owns, operates and maintains two heritage buildings, the Michener House Museum & the Lacombe Blacksmith Shop Museum; preserves over 40,000 artefacts and records in the Lacombe Archives; and provides community programming for all ages throughout the year.

The Lacombe Museums rely on grants, including donations, to secure the future of the Museum in our community.

Community support assists the Historical Society to build and maintain the Lacombe Museum as the hub of history in Lacombe and area.

Financial contributions will help preserve the collections for future generations to come.
