Declared a National and Provincial Historical Site the Doukhobor Village depicts the lifestyles and habits of the Russian Doukhobor People who immigrated to Canada in 1899.

Settling on the prairies the Russian Doukhobors started to build a communal operated enterprise consisting of; grain elevators; flour mills; brick plants and lumber mills. These hard-working, determined people lived in communal villages spread out on approximately three-quarters of a million acres of land. The Veregin Site operated until 1939.

Today the site is a museum complex of 12 buildings consisting of: a museum and administration building; a bakery with brick oven, a bath house, a Prayer Home, barns, a blacksmith shop, sheds, a grain elevator and traces of concrete foundations of past buildings.

The National Doukhobor Heritage Villiage opens a gift shop and offers a family picnic area on site.
