The Museum of the Highwood and the Town of High River struck a deal for the Museum to run the Visitor Information Centre in 2017, turns out it is a great partnership.

Director Irene Kerr said it was a highlight of their year and it was a role they had informally filled before.

"We had a great summer," said Kerr. "We had tons of Heartland visitors. We had people from 49 countries, 44 states and every province in Canada."

She adds they meet lots of really interesting nice people of all ages through the Visitors Centre.

"It was a bit of a learning curve for us. So next year is going to be even better. We hired a coordinator and she has been doing a lot of work with Alberta Tourism."

Kerr says many of the visitors who come to High River are looking for information and the sets for Heartland.

"I am going to leave the Heartland exhibit in. We are hoping to get even more props and photos and update it to Season 10."
