Canada's Most
Infamous
Rum-Running

Murder

The Crowsnest Historical Society opened the newest building and exhibit, the Alberta Provincial Police Barracks, in July 2017 as part of the Crowsnest Museum & Archives.

 

Located at 7809 – 18th Avenue in Coleman beside the former Miners’ Union Hospital and two doors down from the Crowsnest Museum, the former Alberta Provincial Police barracks examines Canada’s most infamous rum running murder. The new exhibition walks you through Alberta’s prohibition heritage, the stories surrounding the Alberta Provincial Police, and the local history surrounding the shooting of Constable Stephen Lawson by Florence Lassandro and Emilio Picariello.
