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


CAHS received funding from the City of Red Deer to create early reader versions of four Kerry Wood books.  Illustrators Holly Mayho and Emma Guido have been engaged in the project.  Rondo Wood, Kerry’s daughter, will be acting as a consultant.  Mark Collings will manage the project.

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.
