Homestead Heritage Forest

Homestead Heritage Forest is located 3 km south of the junction to Candle Lake along Highway 120. This is a story of pioneer culture within the spruce forest. The homestead site is connected to Torch Lake by Birchbark Creek which flows south from the lake. A number of the buildings have been reconstructed, but the two-storey house is the real thing, built in the Norwegian style in 1937. There are a number of walking trails on the property that introduce you to techniques that were used in managing the spruce woodlot, along with the wildlife and plant life in the area.
