Attraction Details

When the Ukrainian settlers arrived in 1899, their first homes were small tent-shaped pole structures covered with straw, known as buddas. Michael Swistun, who was born in a budda in 1900, later constructed 2 buddas on the original site next to the settlement trail and donated them with 32 hectares (80 acres) of land to the Town of Rossburn as an historic site.
