Preserving the

Roots of the Past

From an empty field to a little village nestled by the Icelandic river

On February 15, 1999, a grassroots organization held its first meeting in the Arborg town office to gauge support for the idea of building a heritage village in town. The Arborg Heritage Village became incorporated in May 1999, and it soon obtained charitable status. Since then, we've moved 14 buildings onto the site, and we're open to the public for tours during seasonal hours. Thanks to government funding, the Heritage Village is able to hire university students to give tours over the summer. In 2016, our students led tours for over 1000 visitors, including six international bus tours. Our tours are typically about an hour and a half to two hours. Shorter tours are also available.  

To date, the Arborg and District Multicultural Heritage Village has advanced through strong commitment, dedication, and determination of the board, community, and local government.

Our Vision Statement:

"Present and future generations preserving the roots of our past"

Our Mission Statement:

"We are committed to providing an interpretive centre dedicated to preserving and showcasing the multicultural history of the area in a working village depicting the past, present, and future of a rural Manitoba farming community."
