Nearly 150 years ago a story began to unfold in Southern Alberta with the arrival of George McDougall...
A humble church marked the beginning of the settlement in the region as we know it today.
In 2017, that church burned to the ground.
Even though the fire was devastating, it helped us realize that our relationship with the Stoney Nakoda Nation had weakened and that we now had the opportunity to come together to help support and restore the site for future generations.
Since the fire, we have been working with the Province of Alberta and the Stoney Nakoda Nation to develop a plan to move forward and recreate this treasured Alberta Historic Site.
In February 2019, the Province of Alberta accepted our proposal for the restoration of the historic church building. We also started work on a new and improved interpretive walk that will better tell the story of our Stoney Nakoda neighbours.
With your help, our collective history can continue to be told and that Church can once again stand tall and to better tell both stories, side by side, for the benefit of our visitors. The flame has been rekindled, and with all of us working together that flame will flicker to life.
