Those of us who are involved with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame know that it is a special place. Not only because of the timeless pieces it holds with regards to the sporting world, but also because of the rich historical value it holds in this province.
Housing some of Saskatchewan’s most memorable and valuable sporting artifacts, the hall provides countless hours of learning, observation and storytelling the likes of which exists in few other buildings on the planet. Sport however, is not the only thing it has to offer.
Thanks to a new event hosted by Regina Downtown BID entitled Doors Open Regina we have been given the chance to show off not only the contents of the Hall, but the Hall itself. There is a rich history within the building, almost as rich as the history of the building itself.
For example, did you know that the Hall is located in the Land Titles building along with several other sport related associations for the province? The Land Titles building was the first building commissioned by the new provincial government in 1906 and was officially completed in 1910. There are many features of the building which coincide with not only building trends of the time but also things like concrete and marble construction which corresponded with fireproofing codes of the 1910s.
There is so much history, not only with the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame, but also with our incredible Land Titles building that it would be impossible to share it all with you in a few words on this site.
This is why the Hall, in cooperation with Doors Open Regina would like to invite you all to come experience it for yourself at a free open house on Saturday June 1. Our exhibits will be on display free of charge during our regular hours, with the event itself running from 10am-2pm. Also on display will be many of the other iconic buildings in Regina’s downtown area.
