Welcome to the Edmonton and District Historical Society (EDHS). We’re a non-profit, charitable society with a mandate to promote and preserve the history of Edmonton and the surrounding district. We offer a number of historical and educational events and programs over the course of the year, including our Speaker Series, and the annual Historic Festival and Doors Open Edmonton.

The EDHS is a chapter of the Historical Society of Alberta (HSA), a provincial organization created in 1907 to preserve and disseminate Alberta’s history through its publications.
