AAA Editor Notes
Fort Steele Heritage Town is 3 km (1.9 mi.) s.w. at 9851 Hwy. 93/95. The 11-hectare (27-acre) site preserves an 1890s boomtown. More than 60 restored, reconstructed or original buildings include an operating bakery, restaurant, tinsmith shop, blacksmith shop and newspaper office. Street dramas and demonstrations such as quilting, horse farming and ice cream making help re-create life in the era.

Fort Steele's Clydesdales give wagon rides daily mid-June through Labour Day and perform a six-horse hitch show on July 1. Live entertainment is presented in the Wild Horse Theatre late June through Labour Day. Steam train rides are available during this time. A visitor reception center contains exhibits about the town's history.
