About the Edson and District Historical Society

The Edson and District Historical Society (EDHS) is a charitable organization founded in 1975 to preserve and protect the history and artefacts of Edson and area. In order to accomplish that mission, a building was needed to house the artefacts and information, and a very fitting home was found.

The original Galloway Railway Station was a former Canadian Northern Station and was moved by Canadian National for the EDHS to Centennial Park in Edson 1975 to being its incarnation as a museum. The Galloway Station Museum officially opened to the public in 1981 and has continued operation under the volunteer EDHS board management.

In September 2011 the EDHS board witnessed its vision evolve when the new Galloway Station Museum was expanded to more than twice its original size and contained a Travel Centre, gift shop and rental space.

The EDHS Board is a hybrid volunteer governance board, whose members are largely elected from the general membership, and are responsible for the operation of the Galloway Station Museum & Travel Centre. Two municipal representatives are also appointed to the EDHS Board – one from Yellowhead County and one from the Town of Edson.

Anyone is welcome to join the Edson & District Historical Society! There are at least two general membership meetings per year and they are held at the Galloway Station Museum & Travel Centre.
