Sexsmith & District Museum Society

The Sexsmith & District Museum Society

An organizational meeting of the Sexsmith to the Smoky Historical Society was called on April 16, 1977 at Teepee Creek for the purpose of writing a history book of the area. The senior citizens of Sexsmith and Teepee Creek were asked to act as directors for the society. The society was incorporated on April 7, 1978 as "Sexsmith to the Smoky Historical Society". The society began collecting and collating stories from as many residents and former residents that they could. The book written "Wagon Trails Grown Over" was published in 1980. The name of the society was changed to "Sexsmith & District Museum Society" in 1988.

The Sexsmith and District Museum Society is a non-profit society working to preserve the history and culture of Sexsmith and they surrounding area.
