Big Valley:<br />

Was settled before 1910 because of the rich soil<br />

and natural grass known as prairie wool. In 1911 the<br />

Canadian Northern Railway began to lay track through<br />

Big Valley. Big Valley hosts the Prairie Steam train<br />

tours in the summer.<br />

Big Valley is the home to Skeeter Thurston, a<br />

rodeo competitor and Zeke Thurston, a rodeo World<br />

Champion.<br />

Travel back in time and let the Big Valley Historical<br />

Society show you the many historic sites. Start at the<br />

main museum, the 1930’s McAlister Motors Garage<br />

and see the vintage automobiles, trucks, tractors,<br />

other antiques and artifacts. Explore the other historic<br />

sites— the 1916 St. Edmund’s Anglican Church (the<br />

“Blue Church”), our wooden grain elevator, and our<br />

railway baggage cars which display a collection of<br />

salt and pepper shakers and model trains. The newest<br />

attraction, the Big Valley Tool Museum on Railway<br />

Avenue, houses over 10,000 antique tools, a collection<br />

of dolls and glassware and over 300 model trucks, cars<br />

and tractors. Don’t miss seeing the Canadian Northern<br />

Society’s 1912 CN Railway Station and the nearby<br />

interpretive walk to the Roundhouse. 403-740-2410;<br />

The Big Valley Golf Course is just on the western<br />

edge of the village. It’s a challenging nine hole course<br />

with lots of hills on sand greens. The view from the<br />

course and the club house is spectacular. It overlooks<br />

the village and the valley and there is still plenty of<br />

land to expand to 18 holes in the future. They are open<br />

from dawn till dusk and it costs $10 for nine holes and<br />

$15 to play all day. Power carts are not available. 403-<br />

Carbon:<br />

Evolved as ranchers moved into the area in the<br />

1890’s. It became incorporated in 1912 as a village<br />

when the Kneehill Coal Mines flourished. There were<br />

many coal seams running through the valley, thus it<br />

was suggested by L.D. Elliot, an area rancher, that the<br />

new village be named Carbon. It lies in the belt of the<br />

Canadian Badlands and is known for its geographical<br />

beauty.<br />

Farmers Exchange (museum and gift shop) located<br />

at 414 Caradoc Ave., Carbon, Ab. The local museum<br />

displays many interesting and factual accounts of the<br />

mining era, as well as the development of ranching<br />

and as time progressed the cultivation of the rich soil,<br />

brought many new settlers from U.S.A and Europe. A<br />

unique display also tells the story of the 1921 Carbon<br />

Murder Mystery: 3 murders that to this very day have<br />

never been solved. One of the oldest unsolved murders<br />

in Canadian history. Visit us and you will be very<br />

pleasantly surprised and entertained. 403-572-2331; or<br />

Content Bridge - Coronation Page 19<br />

Tail Creek Park and campground, located on Hwy<br />

21, 6.5 km south of Nevis at Content Bridge has 70<br />

units and opens May to September 15. Coin showers,<br />

group camping, public phone, water pump, baseball<br />

diamond and firewood for charge is all available. For<br />

more information call 403-742-2534.<br />

Coronation:<br />

The town grew out of the prairie on Sept. 27, 1911<br />

when the lots were sold by the CPR. Businesses moved<br />

from Haneyville, northwest of the town site to be<br />

congruent with the rail lines. Coronation was expected<br />

to be a hub town, but when cities like Calgary and Red<br />

Deer began to bloom, Coronation was soon forgotten<br />

about in that regard. Coronation was named after the<br />

coronation of King George VI. There are quite a few<br />

notable people that come from Coronation. Doug<br />

Griffiths, an author and former provincial politician<br />

and Melody Davidson, an olympic gold medalist, are a<br />

couple people that come from Coronation.<br />

Coronation Museum and Heritage Park is a “must<br />

see” for Royal Watchers and boasts an extensive<br />

collection of British royalty commemorative items,<br />

including an 1897 teapot celebrating Queen Victoria’s<br />

60th year as sovereign. Along with many artifacts<br />

donated by early settlers of the area. Includes a CP<br />

caboose, school house and park and gazebo. 403-575-<br />

1142<br />

Coronation Dam campground is located just north<br />

of the town of Coronation with 11 serviced sites, five<br />

with power and water. Washroom and shower facility<br />

on site, a trailer dumping station, large areas for group<br />

camping, a camp kitchen and a new large playground.<br />

The Dam is home to rainbow trout and northern pike<br />

and accommodates year round fishing. There is a boat<br />

launch for small fishing boats (no motors allowed).<br />

Nearby to golf course, swimming pool and downtown.<br />

Delburne - Dorothy Page 23<br />

Delburne:<br />

Began with the survey of the railway in 1910, the<br />

name Wilburne was originally chosen to be the name<br />

of the village. However, the Registrar of towns advised<br />

that there was a town by that name. Using words that<br />

rhyme with Willburne, Delburne was finally chosen.<br />

Incorporated as a village in the fall of 1912.<br />

The Anthony Henday Museum is housed in a<br />

historical CN Railway station and the Delburne CNR<br />

water tank tower building, the museum documents<br />

local history from the days of Anthony Henday in<br />

the mid-1700s through the social and economic<br />

development of the area, including the coal mining<br />

period. Exhibits include various artifacts, a replica<br />

homesteader’s cabin, a one-room school and a farming<br />

machine shed. 403-749-2711 July-Aug; off season call<br />

Delburne next to the golf course; 16 serviced sites,<br />

Fawn Meadows is a beautiful nine hole course<br />

located just 30 minutes east of Red Deer, Alberta<br />

along the historic Highway 21 and the “Boomtown<br />

Trail”. They have tree lined fairways, numerous sand<br />

traps and are considered a “must play” in central<br />

Alberta. They are among the first to open and the last<br />

to close in central Alberta, allowing lots of season to<br />

discover one of the best kept secrets in the area. Fully<br />

licensed restaurant, a practice facility, tournament<br />

tent and a 20 site campground. Call 403-749-3296;<br />

Delia:<br />

Named after Delia Davis, wife of Alvin L. Davis,<br />

a local merchant. The village was originally known<br />

The Hardisty Lakeview Golf club is on gently<br />

rolling farm and ranch land and heavily wooded areas<br />

with lush, well groomed fairways that play narrow.<br />

The uneven terrain produces unpredictable lies and<br />

golfers are advised to keep their play to the center of<br />

the fairways to avoid trouble. The greens can also be<br />

challenging thanks to deceptive slopes and undulations<br />

that make them difficult to read. 780-888-2288;<br />

Rosebud:<br />

Rosebud is a hamlet within Wheatland County.<br />

Previously an incorporated municipality, Rosebud<br />

dissolved from village status on Jan.1, 1946.<br />

The hamlet was founded in the 1885 by James<br />

Wishart. While following the Gleichen Trail to Montana<br />

with his family, they awoke to the river valley covered<br />

by wild roses, Alberta’s official flower. Wishart then<br />

reportedly said, “Here’s the promised land, we go no<br />

further.”<br />

The beauty of the valley has attracted many people<br />

throughout the years, from nature lovers to artists.<br />

Notable artists A. Y. Jackson and H. G. Glyde, members<br />

of the Group of Seven, spent a summer in 1944 painting<br />

in the area.<br />

Over the years, farming and coal mining have been<br />

the primary industries. In 1972 the Severn Creek School<br />

was shut down as part of an Alberta wide education<br />

consolidating process and local children were bused to<br />

Standard and Drumheller. This resulted in many of the<br />

local businesses being closed and the hamlet population<br />

dropped to under a dozen people. However, the farming<br />

community of around 400 still support a seed cleaning<br />

plant.<br />

a summer camp initially funded by a grant from the<br />

Alberta government and then supported as Rosebud<br />

Camp of the Arts by Crescent Heights Baptist Church<br />

in Calgary. In 1977 a high school was founded using the<br />

old buildings of the town as classrooms and emphasizing<br />

practical, visual, music and the performing arts in its<br />

curriculum. In the 1980s, Rosebud School of the Arts<br />

began to run theatre, which eventually developed into<br />

Rosebud Theatre and the school shifted its emphasis to<br />

post-secondary education. Today Rosebud Theatre runs<br />

as a fully professional company that offers programming<br />

year round.<br />

Rosebud is located on Highway 840, approximately<br />

100 kms (62 mi) northeast of Calgary and 25 kms (16<br />

people, which translates roughly to “by the river of<br />

many roses”.<br />

Strome:<br />

Strome is a hamlet within Flagstaff County. It is<br />

located on Hwy 13, 58 km (36 mi) east of the City<br />

of Camrose. The hamlet was originally incorporated<br />

as a village on Feb. 3, 1910. It dissolved to become a<br />

hamlet in Flagstaff County on Jan. 1, 2016. Strome’s<br />

name is believed to come from Stromeferry in Ross &<br />

Cromarty, Scotland<br />

Strome Sodbusters Archives Museum – Memories<br />

and roots are the reason our museum was established.<br />

Step back into yesteryear with us as we walk through<br />

our community’s history showing the love, faith,<br />

courage and the challenge that our gallant pioneers left<br />

us. Phone: 780-376-3688/2223.<br />

Strome began developing as a farming community<br />

in 1905. Max Knoll opened the first post office, under<br />

the name of Knollton, and set up the first general store.<br />

The name of the post office was changed to Strome on<br />

July 1, 1906. A hotel, a hardware store, and a church<br />

followed. Strome incorporated as a village on Feb. 3,<br />

1910.<br />

Strome campground is located on the northwest<br />

edge of town, 25 non-serviced treed sites, fire pits, next<br />

to ball diamonds, school playground, hall and gazebo.<br />

First come, first serve basis. No reservations. 780-376-<br />

Sunnynook:<br />

Sunnynook is a hamlet within Special Area No. 2<br />

located 10 km (6.2 mi) east of Hwy 36. The hamlet<br />

formerly housed the Berry Creek Community School<br />

Division office and area post office until amalgamation<br />

of the school division into Prairie Land Regional<br />

Division. No services.<br />

Swalwell:<br />

Swalwell is a hamlet within Kneehill County.<br />

Previously an incorporated municipality, Swalwell<br />

dissolved from village status on Jan. 1, 1946.<br />

Swalwell is located 100 km (62 mi) NW of Calgary<br />

and 5 km (3.1 mi) W of Hwy 21. It is located on<br />

Canadian National Railway’s Three Hills Subdivision<br />

between Three Hills and Beiseker.<br />

Three Hills:<br />

Three Hills was incorporated as a village in 1912,<br />

the year it was moved to its current location on the<br />

Canadian Northern Railway(CNR). With ranchers and<br />

farmers constituting its first residents, it soon became<br />

a centre for the surrounding wheat-growing area. In<br />

1922, the Prairie Bible Institute was established with L.<br />

E. Maxwell as its founding principal. This occurrence<br />

helped to increase the population of the town proper and<br />

its adjacent settlements. By the mid 1980s, the 130-<br />

acre (0.53 km2) Bible College campus and the nearby<br />

hamlets of Grantville and Ruarkville were annexed to<br />

the town.<br />

Although a relatively small community, Three Hills<br />

had the distinction of hosting the Alberta Seniors Games<br />

in the summer of 1998.<br />

Kneehill Historical Museum is the county’s past,<br />

collected in three buildings. The Station House, built<br />

in 1919, is the last surviving CN station of its pattern.<br />

Book a class reunion, grad party, or family gathering<br />

there in the former parlour. Think about what it was<br />

like gathering in a Ghost Pine community home,<br />

listening to the first radio, a hand-built wedding present,<br />

or, mentally ride with the doctors as they make their<br />

rural rounds in Model T’s mounted on the big iron<br />

skis on display in the Main Building. Find the little<br />

Fordson tractor, ‘The Widow Maker’, in the Agriculture<br />

Building. Ask the friendly staff taking you on the tour to<br />

tell you why the tractor is called that. Learn about bees<br />

and hatching chicks while you are there. Join the kids as<br />

they excitedly explore the caboose. There are hours of<br />

memories and things to learn tucked away in Kneehill<br />

Museum, Three Hills, 403-443-2092.<br />

Home to Erica Durance, an actress best known for<br />

playing Lois Lane in the TV series Smallville; Phil<br />

Callaway, an author and humorist; Bill Peters, currently<br />

coach of the NHL team, Calgary Flames.<br />

The Three Hills Campground is located on the E<br />

side of town just off Secondary Road 583. 47 sites,<br />

complete with camp concession stand, shower facilities,<br />

ball diamonds, and within walking distance to local<br />

restaurants and other amenities.<br />

The Three Hills Golf Club and campsite is set along<br />

the Three Hills Creek, and enjoys a unique setting in<br />

a small prairie ‘valley’ that makes a perfect setting for


Page 58<br />

one of the finest nine hole golf courses in central Alberta.<br />

At 3165 yards, the course makes excellent use of the<br />

meandering waterway through all of its 9 holes, and a<br />

staggered set of front and back tees make this layout a<br />

challenging, and sometimes maddening, 18 hole test of<br />

6257 yards. Some of the holes encourage a long hitter<br />

to go for the gusto, yet many tees are better played with<br />

cautious reservation because of the ever present danger of<br />

the dreaded creek. 403-443-5065; threehillsgolfclub.ca.<br />

Tolman <strong>East</strong> & West Camprounds:<br />

For hiking in Dry Island Buffalo Jump Provincial<br />

Park, birding (more than 150 bird species have been<br />

spotted in this park), canoeing and for fishing in the Red<br />

Deer River, these are the two campgrounds affiliated<br />

with the Park. There is 40 unserviced campsites, no<br />

reservations or firewood, potable water from a tap.<br />

Torrington:<br />

Torrington was incorporated as a village until 1997,<br />

when it dissolved to hamlet status under the jurisdiction<br />

of Kneehill County, at the Junction of Hwy 27 & 805.<br />

Strange but true, Torrington is the home to the<br />

infamous Gopher Hole Museum. This attraction features<br />

stuffed gophers (Richardson ground squirrels) posed in a<br />

series of 47 anthropomorphic scenes, from a hair dresser<br />

to a preacher to an RCMP officer. Located Ed of Olds on<br />

The present nine hole course in Trochu is fashioned<br />

around a creek, which meanders through a natural<br />

coulee with uphill and downhill lies, challenging the<br />

golfer on several fairways. Treed hillsides and brush are<br />

in evidence on five or six holes. With a creek just in<br />

front of the green, the par four second is easily the most<br />

scenic hole. The island green is protected by a lagoon<br />
