Melville Heritage Museum
The Heritage Museum is one of the oldest buildings in Melville, having been built in collegiate gothic style of buff-coloured brick in 1913 as the Luther Academy. This building housed the Academy until 1926 when the Academy moved to Regina. At that time it became the St. Paul Home for the Aged and Orphans.
The Museum seeks to portray the ethnic diversity that is found in Melville and area, and to preserve the history of early Lutheran education in our province.
The Heritage Museum presently contains more than 10,000 artifacts with about 1000 books including textbooks in German, English, Greek, Ukrainian and Latin. The 22 rooms of exhibits span three floors of the building. Artifacts and histories of local, provincial and national interest which include Chapel, Library, Grand Trunk Pacific/CNR, Military and Sports History, over 100 original black and white framed photographs depicting Melville’s first quarter century as well as murals and a gift shop.
