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



The CAHS and CAFF will be screening a variety of films from members of the Documentary Organization of Canada – Alberta.   Watch for details.

HELP!!!  We are overstocked with books.  We are reaching out to organizations in Central Alberta to become resellers of our excellent selection of titles. Please refer to the Publications page here for details.

For Titles and Reseller Prices Contact Us at: centralalbertahistory@gmail.com


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.
