‌Historic McKay Avenue School is designated as a Provincial and Municipal Historic Resource. It holds more than a century of artifacts and archives for Edmonton Public Schools. It is critical we all come together to preserve the building so we can continue to share the past with future generations.  

We need your help!

Historic McKay Avenue School requires significant maintenance and repair work. The immediate need is our roof. Although we recently received some historical grants, we have been challenged to find enough funds to fix our roof. We have performed regular maintenance on McKay Avenue School throughout the years but it requires significant infrastructure repair work. Support Archives and Museum by helping us “Shake it Up.”  

You can purchase:                                                                                                        

  • A cedar shake shingle for $25
  • Or multiple shingles at: $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000

Get involved by purchasing a shingle through our secure, easy-to-use processing service.
