McNaught 1912 Log House Project

McNaught House circa 1915
McNaught House 2018

The old log house needed a proper foundation! The Homestead Preservation Society applied to the Alberta Heritage Preservation Partnership Program for funding assistance. We learned we will receive approximately $25,00 toward the $62,00 cost of the project. This includes moving the house, foundation construction, repairs and leveling the house before moving to the new foundation. It should be completed by early, mid-October. If you would like to help to pay toward this project please contact Peter Martin at 780-354-2864.
