The Archives

The Archives is housed in the former R.M. building on Railway Avenue, a short, two block walk from Tomahawk Park. Our materials are presently being developed with the assistance of the Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists and are volunteer maintained. They are available to view free-of-charge; on-site research, only, is offered at this time.

Our museum and archives exist in order to record and preserve the history of the Cut Knife area. Our collections consist of items from the early settlers, which include photos, histories, books, pamphlets, audio interviews, local newspapers (1914 to present) and the Clayton McLain and McLain Family Fonds.  These include local First Nations items pertaining to the events of 1885.

PLEASE NOTE: The archives is under development and we do not have an overall index for public use, at this time. A prior explanation of the general area of your research will help us prepare for your visit. Our archival volunteers are familiar with the collections and will be able to retrieve your requests.

For those of you wishing to use our archival materials for research, please see the Details page for specifics regarding your visit.
