5 km east of Willingdon is the Historic Boian District, featuring St. Mary's Romanian Orthodox Church and a museum dedicated to local Romanian pioneers. The Romanian Pioneer Museum of Boian is located on RR 143, 4 miles north of Hwy 45. For the past few years the Canadian Romanian Society of Alberta has been renovating and adding new facilities to the existing buildings and now has six RV camping stalls with power hookups. It is an open-air museum which preserves artifacts, documents and family histories of the first Romanian immigrants that came from Bukovina to Alberta between the years 1895 and 1915. Join them for their annual Picnic & Entertainment on the third weekend in July.
