Doukhobor Dugout House


On Saturdays in July

Costumed guides tell a fascinating tale at the Doukhobor Dugout House National Historic Site southeast of Blaine Lake.

Exiled from their homeland, Russian Doukhobors settled in 1899, digging into the ravine for shelter. These tenacious settlers lived in the Dugout Houses until 1904, when log houses were built.

Visitors are asked to respect this delicate archaeological site on private property. Strenuous walking is involved in getting to the site. Tours include the Doukhobor dugout house, Ospennia Spring, the new Doukhobor barn, Banya, Tolstoy House, Museum of artifacts, Gift shop and Donna’s Doukhobor Prayer Home.

This attraction is only open on Saturdays in July.
