Pioneer Thresherman's Association
The Pioneer Thresherman's Association at Triangle
formed as a society dedicated to preserving the agricultural and
pioneer heritage of the region including such towns as High Prairie, Donnelly,
McLennan, Valleyview and Grouard. The original members of the
association took a particular interest in the preservation of steam
powered agricultural machinery, but this interest soon expanded into a
wide range of other pioneer artifacts.
In 1962, the Association opened the Pioneer Thresherman's Museum, to house a growing collection of antique farming
vehicles and implements. The collection features both open air and
indoor displays that trace the rural heritage of the region.
The Museum is located west of High Prairie at the
Triangle junction where Highway 2 running east to west meets with
Highway 2 running north and south. The entrance to the museum is about
half a kilometre north of the junction.
