We were in Drumheller for two nights and one rainy overcast day. After spending the morning at the Royal Tyrrell Museum and the immediate dinosaur drive around the badlands, we ventured further afield lured by a brochure of local attractions of the surrounding rural area. The description of Rowley sounded interesting and there in the middle of nowhere beside the... More

The last Saturday of every month is a great time to visit Rowley but order your pizza right at 5:00 pm when they start taking the orders or you'll be waiting awhile. July 27th was so much fun with a visit to Sam's Saloon throught the swinging doors and looking at all the old signs and artifacts while having a... More

On the last day of our Canada trip we discovered the sign 'Museum town' and decided to have a look. It was very special to see an abandoned town so good taken care of. The main street, school, church, railway station and everything looked very identical. It must have been a lonely life out on the prairie when the train... More

We were in Rowley for a fall wedding and what a great location! Beautiful wooden boardwalks, the old abandoned train tracks, and don't forget the Saloon! There is even a playground for the kids to burn off some steam. I had never heard of Rowley before we received our invitation, but I'm sure glad we went to check it out!... More

Rowley is near Trochu, on Road 839, close to Morrin Village. It's a Ghost Town, meaning that nobody lives there anymore, but is maintained so that people can still visit it. It's in the middle of the prairies, which make the thing exciting, as you can only see prairies, and all of a sudden, you have a village in the... More
