Where are we going today?

Each summer more than 2,000 visitors tour the Frenchman Butte Museum site, snuggled into the center of this picturesque hamlet which lies in the valley of the North Saskatchewan River less than an hour's drive northeast of Lloydminster. The museum consists of nine buildings, most of which have been refurbished to the way they existed years ago and arranged along its own street in the community. With so much history in this area, it was necessary for a group of local folks to get together in 1979 and found the Frenchman Butte Museum. It was their desire to preserve and pass on the history of this region. The museum is based upon a collection of guns, arrowheads and other pioneer artifacts gathered by the late Lloyd Furman, who spent many years collecting artifacts. Originally, it was housed in the restored CNR Station, but it quickly outgrew that space. As a result, a large quonset was erected - the Lloyd Furman Building. The site has continued to grow with additional buildings being added as needed.
