Shaunavon’s historic Town Hall building officially has all brand new windows! This major project was done in stages, beginning in fall of 2021 replacing 12 windows, 2022 replacing 8, and the final 6 were replaced in spring 2023.

Until this project began, the windows were the originals from when the Town Hall was built in 1926, which made them 95+ years old!

The Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation assisted with the costs of replacing these windows, with a requirement to maintain the historical appearance of the building. This was executed successfully in the project as the newly installed windows are made from the same material and look identical to the originals. The windows are still made of wood, but are metal clad which will prevent deterioration of the wood and provide longer lasting effects. Screens were also installed with the new windows, which are something the original windows did not possess. With these features, the new windows will increase energy efficiency in the building overall.

The total costs for the project amounted to $168,899.75, which was funded by the following sources: 2021 - $38,348.84 from the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, $35,000 from the Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP) 2022 - $25,000 from the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, $23,538.94 from the Town of Shaunavon 2023 - $20,000 from the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation, $27,118 from the Town of Shaunavon We are extremely grateful for the funding received from the Saskatchewan Heritage Foundation to assist with the costs all throughout this important project to help preserve Shaunavon’s heritage through it’s historic buildings!
