Archives and Heritage

Much of Yorkton's archives and heritage is deeply enriched into the culture of the community. Archives and heritage is publicly accessible for everyone to interact with and learn, both in person and digitally.


The Archives are responsible for acquisitions and preservation of materials which bear on the history and heritage of Yorkton and area. We work closely with the Saskatchewan Council of Archives and Archivists and share some of our collections on the Saskatchewan Archival Information Network.

The Archives take photos, documents, maps and other materials that are approximately 50 years old or more. The majority of these archives are accessible to the public, by appointment only. Please email or call 306-786-1722 for more information or to arrange an appointment.


Yorkton has many beautiful, historic buildings and monuments which are an important part of our history and identity. Some of our unique buildings have been designated as municipal heritage properties.

With detailed documentation, we have been able to create local history books and tours for residents and visitors to experience and learn about the rich history of Yorkton.
