Doc's Town

 

Please note that Doc's Town is closed for the duration of the 2020 season

 

Doc's Town Heritage Village is located in Kinetic Exhibition Park in Swift Current. It consists of eight heritage buildings (blacksmith shop, church, one-room school, Aladdin house, community hall, portable train station, elevator, airmen's barracks) and three modern buildings constructed with heritage features. Each building contains exhibits and collection items that relate to its original use and look. The buildings have come from various places in the southwest, including Leinan, Tuberose and Swift Current. 

The collection of heritage buildings begun by “Doc” Burton Allen has been in operation since 1981.  Managed by a volunteer Board of Directors, Doc’s Town keeps our prairie past alive.

Doc's Town is open from Father's Day to Labour Day. Hours are Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Holiday Mondays from 1:00PM to 5:00PM.
