Bar U Ranch NHS Celebrates 20th Anniversary

The Bar U Ranch National Historic Site will in 2015 celebrate the 20th anniversary of its grand opening.

On Thursday July 30, there will be cake served and some fun family activities to mark the event. The Bar U Ranch, located in the heart of Alberta's ranching country, was officially opened as a national historic site in July 1995.

The site commemorates the history and importance of ranching in Canada and the role of the Bar U Ranch in that industry. It was acquired by Parks Canada in December of 1991.
