Welcome to RETROactive, the official blog of Alberta’s Historic Places Stewardship Section.

The Historic Places Stewardship Section manages Alberta’s programs for the protection and conservation of historic places. Through the following programs, Alberta’s heritage is managed for the benefit and enjoyment of present and future generations.

Program information and staff activities shared on RETROactive will highlight Alberta Culture and Tourism’s commitment to preserve and protect Alberta’s historic places. Whether it’s the corner coffee shop that has always served as a local gathering place or the ornate church at the centre of town with a soaring steeple, historic places define the strong and vibrant communities of Alberta. From the past and into the future, RETROactive will showcase the future of Alberta’s historic places.
