Saskatoon Historic Sites & Interpretive Centres
A National Historic Site, Wanuskewin encompasses a picturesque valley and tributary to the South Saskatchewan River. Northern Plains Indians have been living, hunting and gathering on this site for at least 60 centuries. The site was once a significant Buffalo hunting centre. Stories of the past and the people whose ancestors experienced them await your visit to Wanuskewin.
Meewasin Valley Centre
The Meewasin Valley Centre educates visitors on subjects such as the Meewasin Valley Trail, Saskatoon's history, the South Saskatchewan River and the Future of the River Valley. The centre, which is open seven days a week, includes informational displays and interpretive programs.
Built in 1907 by Alan Bowerman, a prominent local figure during the city's early years, Bowerman House was originally constructed as a hunting lodge. The home, which is currently a private residence, has changed hands a number of time over the years.
