Proud of its roots, Lacombe has literally ‘painted the town’ with images showcasing its history. Murals by artist Tim Giles adorn the sides and backs of buildings throughout the historic downtown area and depict local street scenes drawn from archival photographs. Lacombe’s downtown boasts six Designated Provincial Historic Buildings and the most intact concentration of Edwardian Buildings in Alberta.
Lacombe’s downtown murals depict life in the county between 1890 and 1910, and showcase it’s history, growth, and beauty.
Experience the sights and history of Lacombe by taking a Guided Walking Tour of the murals and Lacombe’s beautiful historic downtown or pick up a Self-Guided Walking Tour brochure or booklet at the Museums.
