Torrington, Alberta

The one and only Gopher Hole Museum is here.

This place is the size of a small house. I have never been inside and I do not plan on going. Torrington is a small place, less than two hundred people. When your town gets smaller and smaller over the years I can certainly appreciate that whoever is left wants to keep the place alive and bring people to your town. This is their claim to fame. All of the fire hydrants are painted to look like gophers such as the one in front of the museum. 

Nice little Lutheran church though.

  1. Just had to look it up - you missed the thrill of a lifetime. The place is loaded with dioramas of stuffed gophers! Ha!
