Did you know?

Red Deer had a much earlier museum. From 1907-1922, Dr. Henry George had a museum on Ross Street and 48th Avenue. The museum had originally opened in Innisfail in 1904, but it was moved to Red Deer in 1907.

Dr. George and his wife, Barbara George (Bernard), helped found the Alberta Natural History Society. As such, their museum collection contained numerous taxidermy animals and natural specimens.
