Broadway - where it all began!
Walk Name: Broadway - where it all began!
Walk Leader(s): Peggy Sarjeant
Description of Walk leader(s) and/or why you are leading this walk (optional):
Broadway Avenue is vitally important to the history of Saskatoon. It is the city’s first commercial district and has ties to the original Temperance Colony settlement of 1882. In 1986, I co-authored the booklet “Broadway through Boom and Bust and Back Again!” published by the Saskatoon Heritage Society and from 1989 to 2007 I was involved in leading walking tours through this historic district. As a long-time resident of Nutana, I regard Broadway as my local shopping centre and gathering place.

A stroll along Saskatoon’s earliest main street with a dip into its alleyways and side streets, looking at its architectural history and listening to stories of times gone by.
