Fun Facts

– Dr. Robert Woods was educated in Ontario, Canada and completed his medical training in Kansas-Missouri territory during the late 1890s. It was there that his younger brother also completed his medical training, and where Robert Woods would meet his future wife- Olive Thomas Hopkins!

– Olive Woods was widowed and had three children who all sadly passed away in infancy before marrying Dr. Woods and moving with him to Telfordville, Alberta in 1903.

– Olive’s first son to survive to adulthood, Edwin, was born in 1905- the same year Alberta became a province!

– Dr. Woods was an avid gardener and when he wasn’t in surgery he was known to be out in his garden. Today, we maintain his original hedge surrounding the property and a sprawling, stunning flower garden.

– The museum opened in 1983 and has remained a beautiful, historical community staple ever since. Dr. Wood’s daughter, Marion, was directly involved in the original furniture placement and spatial design of the museum!
