The home is fully furnished to represent how it would have looked when Nellie McClung lived there, and interpreted to share the stories of Alberta’s Famous 5 group of women. Take some time to explore the home and visit with one of Heritage Park’s knowledgeable interpreters who offer an array of educational and entertaining programming.
