Pancakes and Food for Thought at Lacombe’s Museums

Despite the fact that it is Alberta’s newest city, Lacombe’s identity is very much shaped by its love of the past. Locals and visitors alike come to the museums in Lacombe to further their appetites for local history and see how the city has transformed over the past century. Lacombe is home to the Michener House Museum and Archives, the Flatiron Museum and Interpretive Centre, and the Blacksmith Shop Museum. On Canada Day, nearly 130 individuals visited the Museums and participated in FREE tours of the museums, walking tours downtown and a blacksmithing demonstration over at the Blacksmith Shop.

For this year’s upcoming Lacombe Days there will be a fundraising pancake breakfast with musical entertainment at the Michener House Museum on Saturday, July 16th from 8:00am to 10:30am. All proceeds from the breakfast will go to the not-for-profit Lacombe & District Historical Society which operates the Museums. The very popular Blacksmith Shop Museum will be open to the public again from 11:00am – 3:00pm on the Saturday and will be showcasing various blacksmithing tools and techniques. Entrance to the Museums is free. Visit during Lacombe Days and enjoy delicious pancakes with a side of history.
