Nampa and District Historical Society



Nampa and District Historical Society

Caboose in NampaThe Nampa and District Historical Society formed in 1978 with the purpose of recording and preserving the history of the Village of Nampa. The result of the Society's efforts was a book entitled Turning the Pages of Time. The writing of the book did two things: it won the Alberta Culture History Book award for best history book published in Alberta that year, and it also sparked enough local interest in Nampa's history that the decision to create a museum was made. Donations of artifacts and other historical materials were gathered, and in 1985 the Nampa and District Pioneer Museum was opened to the public.

Inside of the Nampa Museum and Tourism OfficeThe collection of the museum recounts the history and development of Nampa and the surrounding area. Most of the pieces in the collection are donations from the local population.

The Nampa and District Pioneer Museum is located along Highway 2, about 27 kilometres south of the town of Peace River. The museum is situated at the south end of Nampa, and also functions as a tourist information centre for the region.
