Welcome to the Central Alberta Historical Society (CAHS)

We are a bunch of history geeks with various backgrounds and of various ages and stages. We host a speaker series on subjects of local and provincial interest, promote and publish historical works, develop educational and programming activities related to Alberta history, and have a lot of fun at all of this! We’d love to have you on Board, or as a member. Membership in the Society helps us be the best we can be!

Please feel free to contact us at centralalbertahistory@gmail.com



We are so excited to announce our February speaker, Rory Cory, who is Senior Curator of the Military Museums in Calgary. Mr. Cory’s presentation on The Liberation of Holland will be highly visual, and includes some rare and unique photos he unearthed while researching this topic for The Military Museum.

The Military Museums is dedicated to preserving the memories and traditions of the countless Canadians who proudly served their country through numerous wars and conflicts by their selfless dedication, commitment and courage.

The talk is at the Red Deer Museum on Wednesday February 19 at 7pm. It is free, accessible, and all are welcome.

The Museum is always open before our talk, and the current exhibits are The Liberation of Holland, and Anne Frank. Come a bit early and spend some time in the galleries!



If you’re interested in our speaker series, publications program, social media, or have some really good ideas, we’d love to have you join us. Directors at Large are welcome, and we’re still looking for a Treasurer.

The position of Treasurer is not a particularly onerous postion as we do not have complicated operations, and all books and accounts are kept up to date and audited annually. The past Treasurer has prepared a short written guide for the treasurer’s position and will be happy to meet with a prospective Treasurer to go over the details. If you would like more information, please contact centralalbertahistory@gmail.com
