Creating this Website

Creating this website felt like creating a work of art – and that is exactly what we feel this website has become as we share the stories of Yvette Moore, her family and all the artisans we showcase in our incredible historical building. Take your time as you browse through all the pages and especially the videos of 11 of our artisans as they welcome us all into their studios and display the passion of what makes them create their works, tell their stories. With the support of Tourism Saskatchewan, we feel that we have accomplished what we were striving for – to educate our viewers about the creative space that our artisans live and breath in as they passionately hand make their works of art.

The moose jaw electric railway company

In 1910, this privately owned company was organized in Ottawa with shareholders in almost every part of Canada, England and France.  The total investment was three quarters of a million dollars.

From its inaugural run on August 19, 1911 to the last run on October 8, 1932; the streetcars of the Moose Jaw Electric Railway Co. carried over 35,000,000 paid passengers.

Guided by superintendents A.II. Dion, II. A. McLean and in the latter years, George Connor; the company not only provided transportation the citizens of Moose Jaw, but also built and operated an amusement park and dance pavilion in Kingsway Park on the south edge of the city.
