Courthouse Museum

The Courthouse Museum showcases the record of how a rough country changed dramatically. The unique sandstone structure was built in 1907 from stone quarried just a few miles from Cardston, and the building’s striking profile and beautifully finished interior stand as a monument to Cardston’s early pioneer artisans. Used longer than any other courthouse in Alberta, the building still displays the judge’s bench, witness stand, and other court artifacts, including the original jail cells—complete with graffiti. The Courthouse Museum is a Registered Provincial Historic Site and definitely worth the trip.

Cardston Alberta Temple

One of southern Alberta’s most recognized landmarks, the Cardston, Alberta Temple stands majestically in the town’s centre. The town’s settlers, Mormon pioneers, spent ten years constructing the palatial structure while they themselves lived in crude log houses and suffered abject poverty. The temple, finally finished in 1923, stands as a testament to their faith—and their engineering. The first Mormon temple built outside the United States, its clear geometry and strong lines echo the work of Frank Lloyd Wright.

On September 16, 1995, the Government of Canada named the Cardston Alberta Temple a Canadian Historic Site.

The Visitor Centre is open daily from Victoria Day (May) through Labour Day (September).
