The Remington Carriage Museum houses the largest collection of horse drawn vehicles in North America with over 300 carriages, buggies, wagons and sleighs. Carriage rides are available during the summer, weather permitting. Located in the rolling foothills of southern Alberta, the Remington Carriage Museum in Cardston, provides visitors with an authentic experience with 19th and early 20th century horse-drawn transportation. Using state-of-the-art techniques, the Remington Carriage Museum brings this bygone era to life.
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.
The Card Pioneer Home was built by Cardston’s founder Charles Ora Card in 1887 and served as a community centre and stopping place for travelers until the first hotel was built in 1894. The log structure still stands in its original location and is open to the public as a Registered Provincial Historic Site.
