Turtleford Points of Interest
Ernie the Turtle
Turtleford is the proud home of Ernie the Turtle. Standing at 2.4 m, Ernie is Canada’s largest and friendliest turtle. Designed by Don Foulds, Ernie was built to commemorate Turtleford’s acquisition of town status in 1983. Constructed with welded metal and wire mesh covered with cement, Ernie welcomes visitors along Hwy. 26.
Turtleford and District Museum
Just off of Hwy. 26, the Turtleford and District Museum is located in Turtleford’s original CN station now situated in the Lions Park. The Museum welcomes visitors from the May long weekend through Labour Day to see artifacts from local early settlers and aboriginal peoples. Installed each spring, the site features an authentic teepee.
