Members of the Alumni Association of Athol Murray College of Notre Dame longed for an Archives/Museum building on campus for many years. They were influenced by the need to ensure the safe storage and display of memorabilia that had accumulated over 65 years.
The Alberta Branch of the Alberta Alumni Association began spearheading plans to construct the Archives Museum on campus. The Archives Museum officially opened its doors to the public at Allapodreda weekend in May 1993.
This facility was built to preserve the heritage and remarkable history of Notre Dame College and its founder Father Athol Murray.
