What is the history behind this provincial historic site? 

Who was Rutherford and what did this man do that was so important? 

How did this house become protected and why?

    1. I am happy to hear that the first lecture received some positive feedback. Hopefully you will be able to check out the remaining two lectures.

  1. Hi. It’s a minor thing, but you may want to put the address for Rutherford House in some of the advertising material for the lectures (which sound great). It took me a minute to even remember if Rutherford House was in Edmonton or Calgary. Yes, true confession. Greg
