Proudly serving the community for over 45 years!
The Spruce Grove and District Agricultural Heritage Society is a non-profit organization formed in 1972 to support agriculture, horticulture, home making, and quality of life in the community. The Ag Society's goal is to ensure they keep the history of the community alive for both the present and future generations. When Alberta Wheat Pool announced the de-licensing and subsequent demolition of the  Grain Elevator   in 1995, the S.G. Ag. Society stepped in, purchasing the 1958 Elevator for $1,  thereby preserving it as a lasting legacy of the Agricultural history of the area.. Today it is a fully restored, functioning museum, visited by several thousand visitors since that time.
The Ag Society, a group of dedicated volunteer members, has been instrumental in contributing to the Community, beginning with the construction of the Spruce Grove "Agrena" in 1972 (now a hockey and curling rink) and subsequently hosting an annual Agra Fair for 25 years.. This event grew to become Western Canada’s largest Agricultural Fair. Sadly, this Agricultural Fair was discontinued in the 1990's.

Since that time, the Grain Elevator site has become a very busy venue hosting  "old fashioned" carnivals and fairs, specifically tailored towards children and families. Each year, t
housands of visitors from Canada and around the world stop by to visit the
Grain Elevator Museum, Archives, and Farmers' Market. The Agricultural Society sponsors the Spruce Grove Archives..

Several annual summer fund-raising events such as Flapjacks at the Tracks Community Pancake Breakfast, the Farm & Heritage Carnival, and the Harvest Fair are hosted by the Ag Society and are very popular among community members and visitors.
Events hosted at the Elevator Museum site are for the purpose of raising funds to support ongoing maintenance  and preservation of the Grain Elevator and restored Water Tower, educational programs, and the proposed new building on site.

The Spruce Grove & District Agricultural Society's recent significant projects:
  • 2016 - Re-painting of the exterior, foundation, and wall repair, and front and back door replacement.
  • 2016 - 3 new flag poles installed.
  • 2016 - moved a donated vintage 1940's era little red barn onto the Spruce Grove Grain Elevator site.
  • 2012 - painting and restoration of the wooden Grain Elevator Museum.
  • 2011 - the restoration of the old Spruce Grove Water Tower that served Spruce Grove citizens until 1978.
  • The Spruce Grove & District Agricultural Society's long-term goal is to build an Elevator Emporium - a building that will serve as a major tourist and heritage facility for the City of Spruce Grove. The building will be constructed on the elevator site and will resemble a period train station. It will house the Spruce Grove Archives, the Museum collection, Tea House, Gift Shop, and a conference room. This dynamic centre will serve visitors and tourists, but could also be used as a facility for community events and groups. In February 2016, a building project feasibility study was completed, and was presented to the City of Spruce Grove at a counsel meeting in June, 2016.
