The Archives


The Archives is housed in the Museum Administration and Archive Centre (MAAC) at 201 Railway Avenue, a short two block walk from the Museum and Tomahawk Park. Our materials are presently being developed with the assistance of the Saskatchewan Council for Archives and Archivists, and are volunteer maintained.

Archival materials at the Clayton McLain Memorial Museum Archives range in time and type. Items include recorded interviews about the events of 1885, and books and histories from the settler era. Copies of local newspapers from 1914 – to the present are on hand, and the near past is represented with the art, photos and papers of local businesses, schools, and organizations. These are only a sampling of the materials in our collection. 

Access to archival materials is available onsite only.

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.
