BLAINE LAKE, SK S0J 0J0
Costumed guides tell a fascinating tale at this National Heritage Site, which marks its 10th anniversary in 2013. Exiled from their homeland, Russian Doukhobors settled in the area in 1899, digging into the river ravine for shelter. These tenacious pioneers lived in the Dugout Houses until 1904 when log houses were built. Visitors are asked to respect this delicate archaeological site. Located on private property. Strenuous walking involved. 2013 season opening day theme - Doukhobor Betrayal of Our Ancestors' Footprints.
