Old Vegreville Townsite Historical Monument

 

Old Vegreville Townsite Historical Monument
This cairn was erected to mark the location of "Old Vegreville" which stood on this site from 1891 to 1905. The town was moved (on skids, virtually overnight) in 1905 to rendezvous with the new Canadian Northern Railroad right-of-way. Coincidentally, Alberta became a Canadian province that same year.
