Museum History
The Borden Museum maintains historical records and photos of the area. This is just one of the many photos in their collection. Photo of Smith & McQuarrie General Merchants in the early 1900's. This is now Foster's Store.
The Borden Museum consists of 5 buildings, situated on Main Street, Borden SK. Our displays trace the development of an agricultural community since 1900. Special features include an original rural one-room school circa 1925, a replica of the Diefenbaker homestead house, an original barber shop, an original butcher shop both dating back to the 1920's, and a 1950's Masonic Lodge building. This year there will be a new display in the gallery area, featuring a handmade replica of "The Wensley Farm before Power", as well as other items from that time period. Suggested tour time is 2 - 2.5 hours. There is no charge.
