Weiller and Williams Co Ltd: Building a Livestock Empire

September 20 – November 13, 2016

In 2015, the Musée Héritage Museum received a large donation of business and family items that had belonged to Leland Stanford (Lee) Williams, partner in one of Canada’s largest cattle-commission firms. Weiller and Williams Co. Ltd. was founded in 1925, with Lee heading up operations in Edmonton.

This exhibition tells an important Alberta story with images and artifacts from Lee’s years with the company and also from his extensive involvement with horse racing in the province.

St Albert History Gallery

In recognition of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the St Albert Mission, the Musée Héritage Museum celebrated with the St Albert History Gallery. St Albert’s story began 5,000 years ago with the first people that came to this valley. Many others followed: fur traders, missionaries, adventurers and settlers. The Musée Héritage Museum opened an exhibition that tells the story of the St Albert area, the people who came to live here and the ways they changed the community. Many unique and beautiful artifacts from our collection are on display illustrating the story.
