Acadia Valley - Acme<br />

Acadia Valley<br />

A hamlet in southeast Alberta within the Municipal<br />

District (M.D.) of Acadia No. 34. The hamlet is located<br />

along Highway 41 commonly referred to as Buffalo Trail<br />

between Oyen and Medicine Hat and sits about 14.5 km<br />

(9.0 mi) west of the Alberta-Saskatchewan border. It hosts<br />

attractions such as trout fishing in the Acadia Municipal<br />

Recreation Dam four miles west of town on Hwy. 41, the<br />

Prairie Elevator Museum, a former restored Alberta<br />

Wheat Pool grain elevator with a community gift shop<br />

and tea house, and a CNR caboose. The campground has<br />

10 fully serviced camping sites.<br />

Acme<br />

A village found along Hwy. 575 near Linden or 83 km<br />

northeast of Calgary. Acme has a local campground,<br />

curling and racquet ball club, a swimming pool, golf<br />

course, a variety of parks and playgrounds, gas station<br />

and a library among other businesses and services. The<br />

name Acme is derived from the village’s railway heritage.<br />

When the Canadian Pacific Railway reached the<br />

area in 1909, the village’s station became the most<br />

northerly stop on the company’s network. The moniker<br />

‘Acme’ is of Greek origin, meaning ‘the highest point’<br />

thus was applied to the community by CPR surveyors<br />

of the day.<br />

The Kuhnen Natural Area officially opened to the public on Tuesday, June 18, 2019. The large parcel of land in Lacombe County<br />

overlooks a sea of trees and the Red Deer River.<br />

St. Edmund’s Anglican Church (the “Blue Church”), the<br />

wooden grain elevator, and the railway baggage cars<br />

which display a collection of salt and pepper shakers<br />

and model trains. The Big Valley 9-hole Golf Course has<br />

lots of hills on sand greens.<br />

Bindloss<br />

Although not much remains of the quaint hamlet,<br />

Bindloss has a store that still operates as well as a<br />

church. For the abandoned building seekers, this is a<br />

perfect location to find some old prairie buildings<br />

standing the test of time. The hamlet was named after<br />

the English author Harold Edward Bindloss who wrote<br />

a number of notable Western novels. It is located in<br />

Special Areas No. 2 and is approximately 10 km west of<br />

Hwy 41 and 97 km north of Medicine Hat.<br />

Bodo<br />

The community is a hamlet in the MD of Provost and<br />

was named after Bodø, Norway. Approx. 20 population<br />

(2016 census). A few kilometres SW of the Hamlet and 35<br />

km south of Provost is an archeological dig site appropriately<br />

named the Bodo Archaeological Site & Centre.<br />

It is one of the largest and most well-preserved pre-contact<br />

archaeological areas in Western Canada.<br />

The site is large (approx. 200 hectares) and has a particularly<br />

rich complex of archaeological resources that<br />

exhibit evidence of multiple periods of human activity<br />

and habitation dating back as early as 5,000 years ago.<br />

The site also includes evidence for the continued use<br />

over the last 500 years of a “bison pound” where hundreds<br />

of bison were corralled and killed at one time,<br />

which provides invaluable insight to ancient hunting<br />

and butchering strategies.<br />

At Bodo, you have the unique opportunity to take<br />

part in the ongoing archaeological excavation at this<br />

important locale and to contribute to the discovery of<br />

Alberta’s exciting past.<br />

This campground is an ideal place to meet friends and<br />

family in a great setting for water-based activities and<br />

birding. (Add this in if you’d like) According to research<br />

done by the University of Alberta, the lake was named<br />

Buffalo Lake on David Thompson’s map of 1814. It was<br />

so named for its resemblance to the profile of a buffalo<br />

with the legs to the north and the head to the east.<br />

Buffalo Lake


Buffalo Lake - Camrose Page 9<br />

Rochon Sands Provincial Park, located on the shores<br />

of Buffalo Lake, is a manicured landscape that provides<br />

camping facilities and beach access. From the comfort<br />

of their campsites, park visitors can watch the graceful<br />

flight of geese on their late summer migration south. In<br />

the campground, undergrowth provides protection<br />

from wind while large trees create a cool, shady picnic<br />

area.<br />

Byemoor<br />

Was built in the early twentieth century alongside the<br />

railway line. The name referred to a moor in England,<br />

small farms dotting the prairie countryside. Today,<br />

Byemoor is home to a small hotel, arena, community<br />

hall, curling rink, St. Paul’s Anglican Church and<br />

Byemoor School for elementary and Junior High all of<br />

which service the small farming community, as well as<br />

some oilfield offices. The hamlet often teams up with<br />

the neighbouring community of Endiang, found 10 kms<br />

east, creating the slang term ‘Endmoor’ which shows<br />

the amalgamation between community members and<br />

their events. This community can be found at the intersection<br />

of Hwy 853 and Hwy 589, approximately 70 kms<br />

southeast of Stettler and 80 kms northeast of<br />

Carbon Soap Box Derby, July 2019.<br />

Carbon<br />

This ‘Village in the Valley’ evolved as ranchers<br />

moved into the area in the 1890’s. It became incorporated<br />

in 1912 as a village when the Kneehill Coal Mines<br />

were flourishing. There were many coal seams running<br />

through the valley, thus it was suggested by L.D.<br />

Elliot, an area rancher, that the new village be named<br />

Carbon. It lies in the belt of the Canadian Badlands and<br />

is known for its geographical beauty including the<br />

creek that runs throughout. Carbon is just 40 kms west<br />

of Drumheller and one hour from the Calgary airport<br />

with a strong population of approximately 500 people.<br />

Farmers Exchange Museum and gift shop is located on<br />

Main Street across from the general store. The local<br />

museum displays many interesting and factual<br />

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

of ranching and rodeo and as time progressed, the cultivation<br />

of the rich soil which brought many new settlers<br />

from the US and Europe. A unique display also tells the<br />

story of the 1921 Carbon Murder Mystery: three murders<br />

that – to this very day – have never been solved,<br />

making it the oldest unsolved murder case in Canadian<br />

history. The main campground is located near<br />

Czar - Delburne<br />

Delburne<br />

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

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

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. The<br />

Anthony Henday Museum is housed in a historical CN<br />

Railway station and the Delburne CNR water tank<br />

tower building, the museum documents local history<br />

from the days of Anthony Henday in the mid-1700s<br />

dinosaur skull. Coal was eventually discovered in the<br />

Valley. Calgary-Drumheller railway opened in 1913. A<br />

famous coin toss happened between Samuel<br />

Drumheller and Thomas Greentree to decide who the<br />

town would be named after. Home to the World’s<br />

in this desert like area. On the back nine, course<br />

designers decided to embrace the elements - jagged<br />

hills, ancient boulders and cacti. Ravines jut out from<br />

all sides, elevation changes are frequent and fairways<br />

are an unpredictable connection of green patches. Tee<br />

boxes are mounted above cliffs, from which your ball<br />

must land on the fairway or fall mercy to a coulee.<br />

km (58 mi) east of Calgary and 55 km (34 mi) south of<br />

in honour of a group of German soldiers who belonged<br />

to a German Hussar (cavalry) regiment who earlier had<br />

established a large farm near Hussar. With the start of<br />

World War I, most of the soldiers returned to Germany<br />

and those who remained were interned for the duration<br />

of the war. The land, which was part of this German<br />

Canadian Farming Co. Ltd., was purchased after the<br />

war. Following the war, the community, both the village<br />

and the surrounding area, began to grow with an<br />

influx of settlers from around the world. Hussar is a village<br />

located within Wheatland County. It sits at the<br />

many roses”. Rosebud Centennial Museum offers a<br />

guided walking tour that will teach you the rough and<br />

tumble cowboy past of the village of Rosebud.<br />

Akokiniskway Golf Club, a 9-hole course, boasts lush<br />

Strome - Swalwell Page 55<br />

Strome<br />

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

Camrose, the hamlet was originally incorporated as a<br />

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

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

believed to come from Stromeferry in Ross & Cromarty,<br />

Scotland. Strome Sodbusters Archives Museum – memories<br />

and roots are the reason the museum was<br />

established. Step back into yesteryear with us as we<br />

walk through our community’s history showing the<br />

love, faith, courage and the challenge that our gallant<br />

pioneers left us. Strome began developing as a farming<br />

community in 1905. Max Knoll opened the first post<br />

office, under the name of Knollton, and set up the first<br />

general store. The name of the post office was changed<br />

to Strome on July 1, 1906. A hotel, a hardware store,<br />

and a church followed. Strome incorporated as a village<br />

on Feb. 3, 1910. Strome campground is located on the<br />

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

pits, next to ball diamonds, school playground, hall and<br />

gazebo.<br />

A hamlet in Lacombe County, 40 km. east of Red Deer,<br />

population 30. Location of a famous 2-day rodeo the long<br />

weekend of August.<br />

Three Hills<br />

Was incorporated as a village in 1912, the year it was<br />

moved to its current location on the Canadian Northern<br />

Railway(CNR). With ranchers and farmers constituting<br />

its first residents, it soon became a centre for the surrounding<br />

wheat-growing area. In 1922, the Prairie Bible<br />

Institute was established with L. E. Maxwell as its<br />

founding principal. This occurrence helped to increase<br />

the population of the town proper and its adjacent settlements.<br />

By the mid 1980s, the 130-acre (0.53 km2) Bible<br />

College campus and the nearby hamlets of Grantville<br />

and Ruarkville were annexed to the town. Although a<br />

relatively small community, Three Hills had the distinction<br />

of hosting the Alberta Seniors Games in the<br />

summer of 1998. Kneehill Historical Museum is the<br />

county’s past, collected in three buildings. The Station<br />

House, built in 1919, is the last surviving CN station of<br />

its pattern. The Three Hills Campground is located on<br />

the E side of town just off Sec. Road 583 with 47 sites,<br />

concession, shower facilities, ball diamonds, and within<br />

walking distance to local restaurants and other amenities.<br />

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

Quality Plants at Affordable Prices<br />

Wainwright<br />

Area surrounding Wainwright was homesteaded in<br />

1905-06. Established by James Dawson, originally<br />

named Denwood, was later relocated by Grand Trunk<br />

Pacific Railway, and renamed after General William<br />

Wainwright. Divisional point on the Canadian National<br />

Railway main line.<br />

Wainwright has the third largest Stampede in<br />

Canada. In 1907, Canadian government created the<br />

original Buffalo National Park south of town to preserve<br />

the endangered bison. In 1939 the animals were<br />

removed and the park was turned over to the<br />

Department of National Defense. They converted the<br />

park into a training establishment of the Canadian<br />

Army, known as Camp Wainwright. In 1945-46, the<br />

camp was used as a prisoner of war facility where over<br />

1,000 German Officers were interned. Today the camp<br />

is known as Canadian Forces Base/Area support Unit<br />

Wainwright, and is one of the primary training areas in<br />

Canada. The objective of the Wainwright and District<br />

Museum is to collect, conserve, display, research and<br />

interpret the artifacts or documents related to the surrounding<br />

region. As a result, the museum has<br />

constantly strived to learn more about events that have<br />

shaped the past with the aim of transposing this information<br />

into both interesting and informative displays.<br />

Wainwright has many camping sites available:<br />
