Village of Stirling
Village of Stirling

The Village of Stirling is the best-preserved Canadian example of the distinctive settlement pattern known as a Mormon Agricultural Village or the Plat of Zion. The wide
streets and large farmstead lots with barns are hallmarks of a Mormon village. Stop in at the interpretive kiosk at the entrance to the Village or visit the restored Michelsen House, a typical family farm of the early 20th century. The Galt Historic Railway Park with a restored train station is nearby. Both guided and self-guided tours of the town help you discover this unique environment.

These sites are open May long weekend to Labour Day, Friday to Monday. Stirling is 28 km SE of Lethbridge on Hwy. 4.
