Meet the Worthys
Ride along with the Worthy family as they travel on a train to Saskatchewan in 1905.
What was it like to step off the train carrying your worldly belongings in a few small trunks, your children clutching tightly to your skirts? Will your husband be there to meet you as he promised? You’re exhausted after a two thousand mile train trip. How long will it take to go the fifteen miles to the homestead? What will it be like? A thousand questions tumble about in your brain as you step onto the station platform.
This 21,000 square foot exhibit traces a representative settler family’s journey through 100 years of Saskatchewan history, from arrival at the turn of the 20th century to the present day. Follow the family’s generations as each of them face the challenges of farming in Saskatchewan.
