Hours of operation 2021

The Lesco Distributors Pro Show n' Shine for Semi Trucks on September 18 was a resounding success, and with that the EPHF museum will be closing for the season (except for visit by appointment). But the Leduc West Antique Society grounds will once again open for the Leduc Country Christmas Lights in December 2021. It promises to be another breathtaking stroll through a magical winter wonderland.
