Historical Walking Tours are casual self-guided in-town walks past places of heritage significance. It’s a great way to get out and experience the heritage architecture and stories within each of the former towns that make up the Municipality of Crowsnest Pass. These walks are suitable for persons with mobility limitations. Please note that many heritage buildings and sites are privately owned and should be viewed from the street only.
A self-guided historical walking tour is planned for each of the five communities within the Crowsnest Pass. The Blairmore tour has been completed, and pamphlets are available at the heritage kiosk on the south side of main street in the centre of Blairmore. Frank tour pamphlets are available year-round at the Allied Arts Gallery in Frank. Bellevue tour pamphlets can be obtained during the annual Doors Open and Heritage Festival at locations advertised within the Events Calendar. Coleman tour pamphlets are not yet available, although a guided tour of the Coleman National Historic Site can be arranged in advance through the Crowsnest Museum. Hillcrest has not yet had its tour developed.
Alternatively, you can download and print your own copy of these pamphlets. Please note that each pamphlet is set up for double-sided printing in landscape orientation on 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
For Hillcrest and Coleman, visitors can utilize portions of the Heritage Driving Tour map – just use the appropriate town map component as a walking tour.
For longer outings you can select from a number of Heritage Trails.
