The City of Edmonton and the Edmonton City as Museum Project have partnered up to explore one of our city’s most historically significant locations. Join us this Sunday for the River Crossing Pop-Up Museum to learn more about the history of the West Rossdale area while sharing your connection to this meaningful place.
River Crossing (West Rossdale) is a place that is historically and culturally significant for many people, and where the history is long, layered, and deep. It is a site that has been at the heart of trade, travel, kinship, spirituality, community, and culture for thousands of years.
The Pop-Up Museum will be an interactive opportunity to not only learn more about this past, but to also share citizen's connections to this place. Attendees who have a photo or item related to the area are encouraged to bring the items to be shared and documented at the event.
Over the next three years, the City of Edmonton will be engaging with citizens, Indigenous communities and other stakeholders to create a Heritage Interpretive Plan for River Crossing to guide how heritage and culture are reflected in the area, as well as a Business Plan to provide an actionable guide for investment, implementation and decision-making.
