Cenotaph Park

The Taber Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion (GWVA) was organized shortly after WW1, on April 10th, 1919. In 1920 the members decided to erect a monument to honour the 25 men who did not return from the war

The Monument is entirely the work of the veterans except the statue.

A local veteran Thomas Love posed for the picture, the photographs were then sent to Italy, where Master Sculptors completed what is said to be one of the most perfect replica of a Canadian Soldier.

The Memorial stands in the Municipal Park close to the center of town, and was unveiled on July 11, 1928. It has since been formally presented to the Town of Taber, and they are responsible for the upkeep of the site.

All of the branches November 11th ceremonies take place at the cenotaph. 

To the Glorious memory of the men of Taber District who died in the Great War 1914-1918

Vauxhall Potato Statue

Known as the "Potato Capital of the West," visitors are immediately greeted upon arrival to the Town of Vauxhall by this unique landmark.  

Sammy & Samantha Potato were built in 1993 to advertise Vauxhall as the Potato Capital of the West. There was originally an old sign that advertised Vauxhall as the Potato Capital of the West that was the shape of a potato, called Sammy the Spud, made out of plywood and mounted on two poles. It was erected in the late 50's and had become very weathered. When a new sign became necessary the Town Council decided Sammy should have a mate - and so Samantha joined Sammy. Samantha is a red potato and Sammy is a white potato. They are located on the west side of Hwy 36 at the south end of the town of Vauxhall.
