Designated as a Provincial Historic Resource Site, the Reverend Forbes Homestead and Pioneer Hospital is Grande Prairie's oldest log home and first hospital. Built for Reverend and Mrs. Forbes in 1911-12, its construction marked the beginnings of our City.
The house and hospital were fully restored to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the arrival of the Forbes’ and was opened to the public on May 28, 2010.
The Reverend Forbes Homestead is operated by the Grande Prairie Museum and is open during the summer months when guided tours, special events and programs are featured.
