FORHS Walks App is live!

View our city through an historic lens with the new FORHS Walking Tour app! Developed by Digital Fractal Tech with support from the Edmonton Heritage Council, this mobile app allows Edmontonians and visitors to explore fun, informative and interactive historical walking tours connecting Rutherford House to the surrounding community. 

Our first walk is up -- take a leisurely 30-minute walk through campus and learn about what was happening at the University of Alberta from 1908 to 1939.

Stay tuned for more historical walking tours, which will explore the connections between Rutherford House, Alexander Rutherford and the City of Edmonton.
