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 social and fundraising activities. We’d love to have you on Board, or as a member. Membership in the Society helps us be the best we can be!


February is Black History Month. We’re partnering with the Red Deer Welcoming and Inclusive Communities Network (WIC) to bring you this month’s speaker, Tabitha Phiri. Herself an immigrant, Ms. Phiri works with the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association (CAIWA) to help immigrant women, their spouses, and families gain needed skills and find meaningful opportunities in Central Alberta.

Please join us on Wednesday February 21, to hear Ms. Phiri talk about the history and reality of being a black immigrant in Central Alberta. 

7pm, at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery. 4725 47a Ave
