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!



The terms for our current President and Treasurer will end at our AGM on September 19 2018, and our Publications Director is retiring.

As a result we will be looking for interested people to join as Directors-at-Large on the Board or as Treasurer. The main focus of our organization is our speaker series, and we have recently become active in heritage preservation issues as well. We have had an active publications program in the past, and would welcome anyone with an interest in reviving this.

The duties for Treasurer are not onerous as we do not have complicated operations, and all books and accounts are kept up to date and audited annually. If you would like more information, please call 403-304-0742

Did you know you can buy or renew your membership online? It’s true!! Just go to the membership link below. 


We are having a half day tour to the Wadey Centre in Blackfalds on Wednesday May 30.

Cars will leave the Red Deer Museum parking lot at 1pm, and return around 4:30pm. If you’d like to reserve a spot, please call 403-304-0742. Space is limited to 15 people.

We will visit the Wadey Centre Museum ( a fine example of an early 1900s ‘catalogue house’), Blackfalds Veteran’s Monument and go for coffee before we head back to Red Deer.
