Once the early years of hardship were behind them, the Bukovynian settlers built themselves larger and better homes and outbuildings that were similar in style to those they had left behind. The Bukovynian Farmstead represents a farming operation at the point of transition from subsistence farming to commercial grain farming. During the First World War, Ukrainian farmers began to grow crops for profit due to high wartime grain prices and the expansion of the railways into east central Alberta. As their farms grew, the settlers constructed more barns and granaries to house bigger herds and harvests. The historic buildings of the Bukovynian Settlers' farmstead have been restored and furnished to 1918-1919. #Alberta #Edmonton #Historic #UCHV
