The Mennonite Heritage Village was founded in 1992 to establish a historical Mennonite Village depicting the life and times of early settlers in the Swift Current area, and to develop appreciation for the contributions made to this country by Mennonite immigrants.

To achieve this, we generate educational and recreational programs as well as collect, restore and maintain authentic artifacts depicting the historical era from the 1880s to the 1920s.

The Mennonite Heritage Village is classified as a Living Museum, and as such aims at obtaining standards for the site as outlined by the Museums Association of Saskatchewan.

Mennonite Pioneers

They came in the early 1900s to breathe a soul into a barren land. They came to plant for success. They were a people who got up when they fell down. They achieved their goals with a strong will, a settled purpose and invincible determination. "And God let the hungry live because they sowed fields and planted gardens and the yield was fruitful."
