We will be going to the historic Ranchmen’s Club
The Ranchmen’s Club was incorporated formally by the First Session of the Second Legislative Assembly of the Northwest Territories in December 1891. The Club became an important component in the rich fabric of Alberta’s development. Within the confines of the Club, influential people congregated to talk and relax. For many, it became a home away from home, where the outside world rarely intruded.
The Club and its traditions have endured through one move in 1911, two world wars, long years of depression, radical social change and, in 1981, a total restoration of its premises. Today the Club remains a backdrop for men and women to forget the pressures of the outside world and relax in easy camaraderie. Our rooms echo with history, with the voices of the past and with events that took place in this Club.
As one Club Member wrote in 1911:
"And Johnny’s laugh, and Thompson’s yarns, and Billy Cochrane’s song, and Larry’s jokes will make the dullest day seem aught bit long. Oh! Blessed walls, oh! Sacred halls, may thugs despoil thee never; God Save the King, and Heaven bless the Ranchmen’s Club forever."
