In the Footsteps of Nellie
Commemorative Tour and Drama
Take a walk in the footsteps of Nellie McClung as you tour some significant historical landmarks and sites in the beautiful town of Manitou and the impressive Archibald Museum (current site of two of the original homes where Mrs. McClung actually lived during her stay in the Manitou area).
Candlewick is pleased to partner with the local Tourism Committee, Archibald Museum, and local businesses to present this opportunity to celebrate our history and the work of Nellie McClung (formerly from our community). View Manitou and RM of Pembina's authentic Tourism Centre, the Log Cabin. Enjoy some refreshments and drama in the beautiful and historic Manitou Opera House. Catch a glimpse of the community Nellie McClung lived in as well as the work she was dedicated to.
