origin, meaning ‘the highest point’ thus was applied to

the community by CPR surveyors of the day.

to be known as prairie wool. By 1911 the Canadian

Northern Railway began to lay track through Big

Valley. Today, Big Valley hosts the Prairie Steam Train

tours in the summer which attracts thousands of visitors

annually. Travel back in time and let the Big Valley

Historical Society show you the many historic sites.

Motors Garage. See the vintage automobiles, trucks,

tractors, other antiques and artifacts, the new Tool

Museum, the Canadian Northern Society’s 1912 CN

Railway Station and the nearby interpretive walk to the

Roundhouse. Explore the other historic sites— the 1916

St. Edmund’s Anglican Church (the “Blue Church”), the

and model trains.The Big Valley 9-hole Golf Course has

lots of hills on sand greens.

Bindloss

Although not much remains of the quaint hamlet,

Bindloss has a store that still operates as well as a

English author Harold Edward Bindloss who wrote a

number of notable Western novels. It is located in

Special Areas No. 2 and approximately 10 km west of

Hwy 41 and 97 km north of Medicine Hat.

The community is a hamlet in the MD of Provost and

was named after Bodø, Norway. Approx. 20 population

(2016 census). A few kilometres SW of the Hamlet and 35

km south of Provost is an archeological dig site appropriately

named the Bodo Archaeology Centre. It is one

of the largest and most well-preserved pre-contact

archaeological areas in Western Canada.

The site is large (approx. 200 hectares) and particularly

rich complex of archaeological resources that

exhibit evidence of multiple periods of human activity

and habitation dating back as early as 5,000 years ago.

The site also includes evidence for the continued use

over the last 500 years of a “bison pound” where hundreds

of bison were corralled and killed at one time,

which provides invaluable insight to ancient hunting

and butchering strategies.

At Bodo, you have the unique opportunity to take

part in the ongoing archaeological excavation at this

important locale and to contribute to the discovery of

Alberta’s exciting past.

Carbon

This ‘Village in the Valley’ evolved as ranchers

moved into the area in the 1890’s. It became incorporated

in 1912 as a village when the Kneehill Coal Mines

were flourishing. There were many coal seams running

through the valley, thus it was suggested by L.D.

Elliot, an area rancher, that the new village be named

Carbon. It lies in the belt of the Canadian Badlands and

is known for its geographical beauty including the

creek that runs throughout. Carbon is just 40 kms west

of Drumheller and one hour from the Calgary airport

with a strong population of approximately 500.

spot aboriginals used to camp. The natives would tell

explorers to “camp here” and due to a misinterpretation,

the explorers thought the area was called

“Compeer”, thus the name was born.

flower. Wishart then reportedly said, “Here’s the

promised land, we go no further.” Over the years,

farming and coal mining have been the primary industries.

In the 1980s, Rosebud School of the Arts began to

run theatre, which eventually developed into Rosebud

Theatre and the school shifted its emphasis to post-secondary

education. Today Rosebud Theatre runs as a

fully professional company that offers programming

year round. Rosebud is located on Hwy 840, approx. 100

kms (62 mi) northeast of Calgary and 25 kms (16 mi) SW

This area was called Akokiniskway by the Blackfoot

people, which translates roughly to “by the river of

many roses”. Rosebud Centennial Museum offers a

Bible Institute was established with L. E. Maxwell as its

founding principal. This occurrence helped to increase

College campus and the nearby hamlets of Grantville

and Ruarkville were annexed to the town. Although a

Wainwright

Area surrounding Wainwright was homesteaded in

1905-06. Established by James Dawson, originally

named Denwood, was later relocated by Grand Trunk

Pacific Railway, and renamed after General William

Wainwright. Divisional point on the Canadian National

Railway main line.

Has the third largest Stampede in Canada. In 1907,

Canadian government created the original Buffalo

National Park S of town to preserve the endangered

bison. In 1939 the animals were removed and the park

was turned over to the Department of National Defense,

they converted the park into a training establishment

of the Canadian Army , known as Camp Wainwright. In

1945-46, the camp was used as a prisoner of war facility

where over 1,000 German Officers were interned. Today

the camp is know as Canadian Forces Base/Area support

Unit Wainwright, and is one of the primary

training areas in Canada. The objective of the

Wainwright and District Museum is to collect, conserve,

display, research and interpret the artifacts or

documents related to the surrounding region. As a

result, the museum has constantly strived to learn

more about events that have shaped the past with the

aim of transposing this information into both interesting

and informative displays. Wainwright has many
