Walker School Museum

The original Walker School was a four room schoolhouse built in 1908 of brick veneer, and considered to be modern in all respects at that time. The school served until 1927 when on December 14th, it was destroyed by fire. A new school was promptly built on the same site of frame construction, and it still stands today at the north end of Queen Street.

The school is a designated Provincial Historical Resource and now serves as a museum.

For those times that we need to escape the every day and reconnect with nature, Bruderheim residents have the pleasure of taking a short ten minute drive to Elk Island National Park, a local environmental gem.

Often called "Canada's Serengeti", the park boasts the highest density of ungulates (hooved animals such as bison and elk) in Canada, and is second in density only to the Serengeti Plains of Africa.

In preparation for the occasion, Bruderheim's CNR station site was developed into 'Queen's Park', and Main Street was renamed 'Queen Street'.

Location: South end of Queen Street

 

 

Snowmobile Accessibility

Revv up for some winter fun  -  the Bruderheim surrounding area is a great place to hit the snow trails.
